Stackato Python Perl cloud platform based on Cloud FoundrySince we announced the Developer Preview of Stackato, our new Python & Perl cloud platform, we've had an overwhelming amount of response. I'm continuing to talk to people at Interop Enterprise Cloud Summit these next couple of days about the solution that we built by extending Cloud Foundry. We are very excited about all the interest! There is clearly demand for migrating existing or deploying new Python and Perl applications to the cloud.

If you signed up to get access and are wondering why you haven't heard from us yet, we appreciate your patience. We are sifting through all the responses to the qualification questionnaire right now. At the private Preview stage, we are currently limiting it to select people.

If you signed up, but have not yet completed the questionnaire, please do so. You should have received an email from us with a link to it. If you did not, please email me at diane [dot] m [at] activestate [dot] com (subject: Please%20send%20me%20Stackato%20Questionnaire%20URL) and I'll send the URL to you directly.

In the mean time, follow us on Twitter (@activestate) to keep updated with the latest news and sneak peeks behind the scenes of Stackato. Thanks for all your interest, everyone!

PS - It's not too late to sign up! If you're interested in helping us test and provide features for Stackato to deploy, manage and scale your Python & Perl applications in a private or public cloud - you can still sign up at
