Stackato on HP Cloud Services
Stackato is a cloud application platform based on Cloud Foundry for creating a private PaaS. This video shows deploying an application to a locally running "micro cloud" then re-targeting and deploying the same application to a Stackato cluster running on HP Cloud Services.
It also show the new Stackato interface in Komodo IDE 7 and touches briefly on the use of the 'stackato run' command and post-staging hooks.
Komodo IDE 7 features collaborative editing. Share code with other developers in collaborative sessions that allow two or more users to work on a file at the same time. Code Collaboration shares changes with other authorized Komodo IDE users in real time, with helpful highlights to identify what was added, what was removed, and who made the changes.
New in Komodo IDE 7 is the Code Profiling tool for Python and PHP. Run your application, then view a graphical representation of the code profiling results, showing you what parts of your code are taking longest to execute.
