Last week we launched Stackato 1.0! Although it was an important day for ActiveState, it was a far more important day for developers and enterprises looking to move to the cloud.
Stackato is the application platform for creating a private, secure, flexible Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) using any language on any stack on any cloud. From the desktop to the datacenter, Stackato makes it easy to develop, deploy, migrate, scale, manage, and monitor applications on any cloud. With Stackato, developers can simulate a production environment on a local machine, code, test, and then launch an application to any cloud. And Enterprise IT can achieve new levels of data security, reduce time to market, save money, ensure compliance, and gain greater control over the cloud.
Stackato’s ability to support any technology platform, its ease of deployment and support for private cloud PaaS environments gives it a clear leadership position in the increasingly crowded PaaS space. Competitors include Red Hat’s OpenShift, CloudBees and Cloud Foundry, though few vendors match its combination of flexibility and ability to deploy private cloud PaaS environments.
