Based on Open Source, Built for Enterprise
Stackato is a secure, stable and commercially supported enterprise Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that is built with and on top of various open source packages including Cloud Foundry and Docker. ActiveState is proud to be a Cloud Foundry partner, Community Lead for Python, a member of the Cloud Foundry Community Advisory Board (CAB), and a founding gold member of the forthcoming Cloud Foundry foundation.
The Leading Independent Cloud Foundry Based PaaS
Stackato shares the same architecture as Cloud Foundry, but some components have been modified and extended to suit the specific needs of our enterprise customers and OEM partners. Stackato is the easiest way to get started with Cloud Foundry.
Out-of-the box, Stackato just works.
"I like the Cloud Foundry project and vision. It was an attractive option, but ultimately, Stackato's enterprise solution offered us a faster path...out-of-the-box PaaS technology that just worked."

What is Cloud Foundry and the Community Advisory Board?
Cloud Foundry is the open source PaaS technology supported by a large community. In order to advance the technology, the Community Advisory Board (CAB) was established to support Cloud Foundry in its second iteration (Cloud Foundry v2). The mandate of the group is "to foster a healthy, vibrant, collaborative and innovative community and ecosystem around the Cloud Foundry platform and open source project." In addition to ActiveState, the CAB consists of other companies such as Canonical, CenturyLink, CloudCredo, IBM, Intel, Pivotal, and Stark & Wayne.
