Release of new, more powerful Stackato Private PaaS Solution Coincides with HP Cloud Services Public Beta

I’m pleased to announce that ActiveState and HP Cloud Services have formed an extended partnership, ensuring support for Stackato 1.2 running on HP Cloud Services. Stackato is the application platform for creating a private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and its industry-leading cloud application security, data privacy, and control are now available on the HP Cloud Services infrastructure.

This announcement coincides with the upcoming HP Cloud Services move to public beta. It follows on the heels of the successful launch of Stackato version 1.2, a major upgrade that delivers several new features, including persistent file system services (and associated Drupal compatibility), enhanced app store functionality, integrated debugging support with Komodo IDE, Heroku build-pack support, and configurable user/group permissions and quotas.

HP Cloud Services (HPCS) is based on HP’s world class hardware and software, with key elements of HP Converged Infrastructure combined with a developer-friendly integration of OpenStack™ technology. Available soon in public beta, HPCS offerings include HP Cloud Compute, HP Cloud Object Storage, and the HP Cloud Content Delivery Network.

With this integration, developers and enterprises can quickly and seamlessly create a private PaaS in HP Cloud Services without having to download a virtual machine.

Stackato 1.2 on HPCS infrastructure provides a secure middleware layer to complement HPCS’ unique hybrid delivery solution for private, managed, and public cloud deployments. Stackato’s support for HP Cloud Services gives enterprise developers more options and flexibility when choosing their cloud infrastructure services, while offering all the benefits of a private PaaS to deploy, scale, and manage applications.

“ActiveState enjoys a mutually-beneficial partnership with HPCS,” says Bart Copeland, ActiveState CEO. “Stackato’s support for HP Cloud Services reinforces our vision of delivering ‘cloud control’ to support any underlying infrastructure, benefitting enterprise developers and IT/DevOps with the flexibility and deployment options they demand.”
