How to Deploy Cloud Foundry v2 to AWS via Vagrant

By Phil Whelan, July 23, 2013
Stackato 2.10.6 Stackato is built on top Cloud Foundry (plus other open source packages), so we're excited about Cloud Foundry v2 and are watching it closely as it evolves. In this post I'm going to quickly run through how I got up and running with Cloud Foundry v2. These notes are based on my colleague's instructions, who is in the process of giving Cloud Foundry v2's tires a good kicking.

Stackato, Vendor Lock-In, and Cloud Foundry Core Compatibility

By Brent Smithurst, November 15, 2012

Cloud Core

Since Stackato's GA (general availability) release in February, many of our customers and prospective customers have expressed their concern about vendor lock-in: They don't want to write applications that are specific to a single vendor's cloud infrastructure.

Using YAML to Drive App Deployment

By Troy Topnik, November 30, 2011
stackato.yml config - Automated Deployment

There's a very handy but sometimes overlooked feature of the stackato client that we'd like to let you know more about. I often have to remind myself to point it out when I'm doing demos for people, as it's something that I've quickly come to take for granted.

Using Eclipse STS with Stackato

By Graham Stuart, November 8, 2011

Last week, we decided to take SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) for a spin with Stackato. The point was to try a tool engineered for a standard version of Cloud Foundry with our variant, and make sure our version hadn't lost the ability to work with STS.

As an added wrinkle, our tester (yours truly) is not a regular Eclipse user. Presumably, if I could make STS Integration work, then the process wasn't excessively complex.

Stackato and Cloud Foundry: Comparing PaaS Solutions

By Troy Topnik, October 18, 2011
alt-title

We love Cloud Foundry. It's the right architecture for a cloud application platform. Without this open source project to build on we wouldn't have Stackato in it's current form. We're excited to be a part of this growing community, and proud to have been chosen as a community partner.
