Connecting to Database Services in Stackato

By Troy Topnik, November 21, 2011

I was going to write a fairly straightforward post about Stackato's 'dbshell' command, demonstrating how you can use it to access the databases provisioned by Stackato. However, a few days ago Cloud Foundry blogged about Caldecott, demonstrating how to connect to database services on cloudfoundry.com, so the scope of this article has changed a bit.

Cloud Expo Wrap-Up: Building Private Clouds, Private PaaS

By Angie Hirata, November 11, 2011

Fresh back from Cloud Expo West, it was a great event to further educate, evangelize, and promote private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Stackato. Being that Stackato (our private PaaS cloud platform) is new for us in 2011, it was the first Cloud Expo we've participated in. And participate we did! We were busy the entire week giving talks, sitting on panels, attending sessions, meeting with partners, and talking to lots of people at our booth. Phew!

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.

Virtualization in the EC2 cloud using LXC

By Daniil Kulchenko, October 27, 2011

EC2 is already a (para)virtualized environment, which means it’s nearly impossible to run your own virtualization (KVM/VirtualBox/qemu) from inside that environment. However, Linux recently introduced a new system into the kernel, called cgroups, which provides a way to isolate process groups from each other in the kernel.
