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.

Clojure on Stackato

Stackato, like Cloud Foundry, strives to get out of your way as much as possible when deploying web applications. We recently added support for Clojure through leiningen, the de-facto tool to setup and work with Clojure projects.

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.

Infrastructure-Agnostic PaaS: Why we Joined OpenStack and OVA

By Angie Hirata, October 13, 2011

cloud infrastructureWhile Stackato is still in beta, we've been having conversations with many companies that are testing Stackato as a private PaaS platform. Whether large companies or private cloud operators, they seem to fall into two categories when it comes to how they view the underlying infrastructure of their private cloud.

1. Some are 100% VMware, and run their private cloud on vSphere, vCenter, vCloud Director - the VMware cloud infrastructure stack.
