ActiveState Launches Business Edition for ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl
by Liliya Apostolova

ActiveState Business Edition integrates commercial-grade ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl support with access to platform builds and repositories for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, AIX, Solaris and HP-UX as well as to older versions across all platforms.

Dynamic languages like Perl, Python and Tcl are often used because of their flexibility and extensibility, providing development with the tools to create applications faster.

However, often companies don't have the luxury or budget to hire a specific dynamic language expert and must ensure development staff is focused on the right things.

Ideal for finance, aerospace & defense, and government organizations with small deployments of Perl, Python or Tcl, in internal business-critical applications, ActiveState Business Edition marries ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl with affordable and reliable commercial support.

ActiveState Business Edition offers:

  • Maximum uptime for business-critical applications
  • More development time to focus on core competencies
  • Compliance with your corporate standards for supported open source products
  • Quality-assured builds and repositories for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X, AIX, Solaris and HP-UX
  • Access to old ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl versions across all platforms for easy product testing across versions
  • Access to the exclusive Package Managers for ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl (PPM, PyPM, Teapot) for simple management of Perl modules or extensions

ActiveState Business Edition pricing is based on language and number of servers at $999/server/year.
