You asked for it, you got it: our new Stackato Sandbox service makes it easier for you to test deployment to the cloud (and more).
The Stackato Sandbox service allows you to test deployment of apps to a privately hosted environment on Amazon EC2, complete with hosting, security, and scaling of applications. And you could win big* for trying the Stackato Sandbox!
Stackato Beta testers can now use the Stackato Sandbox to try running a private PaaS on Amazon EC2 for up to three months. (Not a Stackato Beta tester yet? Sign up to get started.)
Already a Stackato Beta tester? Getting started with the Sandbox is easy! Simply login to the Stackato community and request access to the Sandbox—you'll see a big, blue request access button in the middle of the page. Beta testers requesting access will be placed in a queue and notified when space becomes available. (Keep in mind that the Stackato Sandbox service is for testing purposes only and is not to be used for production: at end of your three month Sandbox term, all Sandbox containers will be deleted entirely with no mechanism to restore any of the contents).
* Try the Stackato Sandbox today and you could win a $1000 trip!
