VANCOUVER, British Columbia– April 10, 2013 – ActiveState®, whose software enables developers and enterprises to innovate from code to cloud, today announced the release of Stackato® 2.10, the next evolution of the company’s groundbreaking private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) technology for the agile enterprise. Enterprise cloud leaders like HP, ExactTarget, and Mozilla use Stackato to get to market faster, be more productive, save money, and innovate. Highlighting this Stackato release is a new Oracle DB add-on, allowing enterprise developers to easily create and deploy applications that depend on an Oracle back-end, without IT assistance. Additional updates include more efficient log-streaming (with Logyard), improved security, an even better web management console user interface, and upgrades to PostgreSQL, Perl, Node.js, MongoDB, uWSGI, and the Mono add-on for .NET applications.

“The agile enterprise demands extensibility and flexibility,” notes ActiveState director of product management Brent Smithurst. “Stackato is extensible through support for Heroku buildpacks and the Stackato Add-On system. Our enterprise customers needed a seamless way for their developers to use Oracle as a back-end without IT intervention, so we created this new add-on, complete with Spring auto-reconfiguration support. Stackato continues to make it easy for DevOps to deploy PaaS in the enterprise, and fast for development organizations to gain value from it.”
