United We Stand: The Stackato Partner Program and What It Means For ActiveState
by Bart Copeland

Bart Copeland, January 18, 2013

Earlier this week, ActiveState announced the launch of the Stackato Partner Program. This program connects Stackato’s private PaaS technology with leading infrastructure technologies and service providers. Our inaugural partners are cloud infrastructure provider Cloudscaling, cloud-development services provider Cloud Technology Partners, and cloud IT services provider BestIT.

We’re proud to partner with Cloudscaling, Cloud Technology Partners, and BestIT. But this is just the start. As it grows, the Stackato Partner Program will offer more choices for the enterprise. More and more enterprises are demanding Stackato-powered private clouds, and Stackato partners will help meet this market need. Stackato ecosystem partners will deliver integrated cloud solutions, offering their customers all the convenience, scalability, and efficiency of the public cloud in a more secure, flexible, and controlled private-cloud environment.

Cloudscaling and Cloud Technology Partners are two recognized leaders in the OpenStack community. Our partnerships with them reinforce ActiveState’s commitment to (and Stackato’s seamless compatibility with) the OpenStack platform. I’m equally proud to work with leading cloud IT services provider BestIT.

Establishing partnerships with the ISV and VAR partner community is essential to serving the private-cloud needs of today’s enterprises. Here at ActiveState, we recognize what we’ve accomplished with Stackato, both from a market and from a technology perspective: we’ve recently signed several new enterprise customers, and we’re proud of our burgeoning OEM business. As part of a recently-announced white-label arrangement, ActiveState’s Stackato PaaS technology will power the HP Cloud Application PaaS. Our customer traction and partnerships validate our technology and underscore Stackato’s growing market dominance in enterprise private cloud deployments. But we’re not done. And the Stackato Partner Program is the exciting next step to delivering the true enterprise cloud. Stay tuned.
