How to set up Stackato on OpenStack

By Ho Ming Li, June 10, 2013

This post presents a picto-guide with some commentary on how to get a Stackato PaaS up and running quickly and easily on OpenStack.

Quickly Install WordPress Using Stackato PaaS

One of my favorite features of Stackato is the App Store. It contains many commonly used Open Source products just waiting to be installed with a few clicks of the mouse.

WordPress is one of these apps, and I took a quick screencast to demonstrate just how quick it is.

Logyard: The Why and How of Stackato's Logging System

By Sridhar Ratnakumar, April 18, 2013

Prelude

Log

Early on in the development of Stackato, we recognized that good logging features would be critical to developers and administrators. We also knew that we didn't want to reinvent the wheel, and made the intentional decision not to build log analysis and aggregation tools into the product itself.
