The logical step for an enterprise that has an elastic cloud up and running is to deploy applications. Following ActiveState’s recent Stackato Partner Program announcement with cloud infrastructure leader Cloudscaling, ActiveState’s Cloud Evangelists Diane Mueller and John Wetherill take the plunge and share key insights on deploying Stackato on CloudScaling’s Open Cloud System.
Open Cloud System (OCS) is Cloudscaling’s OpenStack-based production-grade elastic cloud product. OCS takes a different approach to networking from baseline OpenStack. Rather than using VLANs, OCS relies on layer 3 routing, just like Amazon Web Services EC2. While we tested Stackato on both AWC and OpenStack, we we wanted to ensure that Stackato behaved the same or better on OCS, and provided an out-of-the-box experience that would be just as awesome on OCS as on other clouds.
The Cloudscaling team gave us access to an OCS lab environment so that we could install Stackato, build a private PaaS cluster, and run our scaling tests. Here are the results.
