Razuna is an enterprise open-source digital asset management (DAM) / media asset management (MAM) system. It lets you centralize all your digital assets, automate and streamline your workflow, publish your assets directly to the web and collaborate with your team on all your assets.

Razuna gives you the benefit of an open-source DAM/MAM that is supported by a professional company.

Let’s deploy Razuna to the Jelastic cloud so you can see how easy it is!

1. Create an environment

  1. Go to and sign up if you haven’t done so yet, or log in with your Jelastic credentials by clicking the Sign In link on the page.
  2. While in Jelastic dashboard, click the Create environment button at the top left:
  3. Pick your application server (for example, Tomcat 6) and specify your environment name, for example, razunatest.

It will take just a minute for your environment to be created.

2. Upload a Java package

  1. Go to and download Razuna WAR file.
  2. Unzip the package you have just downloaded and upload the WAR file to Jelastic.
  3. Once the package is in Jelastic, deploy it to the environment you created earlier.

3. Start Razuna

That’s all you have to do! Now you can open your application in a web browser, install Razuna and enjoy!

  • Hi there,

    Thank you for doing this for Razuna. Much appreciated. I just have one small, but non the less important issue here….

    In order to use Razuna one also needs to install ImageMagick, ffmpeg, exiftool and other libraries. The last time, I checked Jelastic does not have those tools installed by default or lets the user install them, right? Unless this is solved, Razuna will not be able to handle uploaded assets … 🙁

    Of course, if Jelastic changed this, then all is fine!

    Kind Regards,
    Founder & CTO, Razuna

    • Hello, Nitai!

      Yes, you are right. It’s just initial integration with your application. We’ll add package manager, which allows to install ImageMagick, ffmpeg and other packages as soon as possible.

      It’s really fair point. Thanks!

      • Awesome. Can’t wait to offer Razuna to our user base once available. On another note, we will soon make a hosted encoding service available also, that local installation is not needed anymore.

  • Likewise for some of my work. I’ll probably need to offload C/C++ DSP processing of media files to other hosts, e.g..via SSH ( ).

    It would really be amazing^2 to have the already amazing Jelastic augmented by the ability to create, for example, qemu-based containers that could securely run arbitrary Linux code, such as aforementioned “ImageMagick, ffmpeg, exiftool and other libraries.” In my case I’d also want to be able to run pipelines and associated plugins for media processing & conversion, for audio processing, etc.

  • One additional comment related to running linux C/C++ media conversion programs needed by existing Java apps. (see ) has a feature that allows automatic conversion of MS office documents to wiki format, which allows easy web-publication and rich-authoring of documents using standard word processing tools. XWiki’s feature relies on an Openoffice server being available. It can be configured off Jelastic by pointing the server to a different host. However, It would be nice if there was a way of running openoffice server in standard qemu-like “sandbox” on Jelastic, for those that want this feature entirely on Jelastic.

    I’ve configured and deployed Razuna on Jelastic, the overall setup is seamless and fast. The concept and implementation are excellent. The app is up and running, but I can’t use the site for any testing or demo since all the server side packages are missing. I am just wondering what is the roadmap for the release of package manager, and how long we should wait.

    • Hi! I don’t know the exact date, but we know that this feature is on demand. We are working hard on this. Also don’t forget to vote The more votes a feature gets – the higher priority it gets in the roadmap.

  • Hello,
    I alo have configured and deployed razuna on jelastic in a 14 days free trial, but see that the packages are still missing.

    Any news on this?
