Crafters and cloud users, rejoice! the CraftBukkit server has been recently deployed onto Stackato’s App Store, enabling users and ActiveState devs to start playing one of their favourite sandbox indie game on the cloud.
Stackato has supported Java from the beginning, but without buildpacks the choice of Java runtimes has thus far been limited to exactly one: Java6 (née jdk1.6) which until recently was the most widely used Java release. Now that has changed.
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.
It should come as no surprise that ActiveState is offering the ability to rebrand and white label Stackato to select enterprise and OEM partners. Stackato, ActiveState's Enterprise PaaS, comes from a long line of products that have been embedded in enterprise software and hardware.
