PaaS in an Hour: Stackato Setup 101
by Isabelle Groc

With Stackato Private Platform as a Service (PaaS), enterprise IT enjoys rapid application deployment, scalable administration, and greater control while developers can code in the language that’s right for them. But how does Stackato actually work?

Last week, ActiveState Cloud Engineer Ho Ming Li and Technical Communications Lead Troy Topnik led a hands-on workshop on how to get started with Stackato. Using a step-by-step approach, the presenters demonstrated how Private PaaS empowers IT and DevOps teams and streamlines the application development and deployment processes.

Topics covered in the workshop included: Installing and managing a micro cloud on a local machine; using the web console and CLI client; installing applications; turning the Stackato VM Micro Cloud into a full production PaaS; and using the Micro Cloud and PaaS for a smoother development workflow. By the end of the workshop, participants had a private PaaS running locally on the hypervisor of their choice. 

Download Stackato today, and meet the needs of Devs for rapid application deployment while still maintaining control and governance.
