10 Steps to the Cloud
Phil Whelan, Technology Evangelist and Troy Topnik, Technical Communications Manager
Although most companies have only partially virtualized their data centers, CIOs and IT Directors recognize that the cloud is the future of IT. This webinar walks through 10 steps IT organizations can take when adopting cloud technologies — from starting small, and gaining expertise, to rolling out IaaS, PaaS and continuous integration.
Orchestrating Docker Across Your Cloud
Phil Whelan, Technology Evangelist and Ho Ming Li, Cloud Solution Architect
Containerization is the future of software deployment. Docker provides an elegant way to package the world into portable entities and provides a growing number of additional features. But Docker is a building block. When you reach a high scale and plan for distribution and redundancy, you start to see that more is needed.
Bringing Your Legacy Apps to the Cloud
Ho Ming Li, Cloud Solution Architect, and Phil Whelan, Technology Evangelist
Getting your new applications into the cloud is a relatively simple procedure. However, enterprises are faced with a large number of existing applications in their current portfolio that may not be quite ready for the new cloud world. Watch the webinar to find out more.

How to download and set up the Stackato micro cloud — a stand-alone instance of Stackato that is functionally identical to a full Stackato cluster.
Installing the Client
How to install the Stackato Client, a CLI that enables you to push applications directly from your computer to your Stackato server.
Creating a Custom App Store
Add your own custom app store to your Stackato cluster or micro cloud with the simple use of a YAML file — giving developers shared access to a variety of applications.
Deploying and Scaling Apps
This video demonstrates how you can easily deploy and scale applications to your Stackato cluster or micro cloud.
Monitoring a Cluster
Monitoring the health of your applications and state of your clusters is easy with internal views such as the Dashboard and Cloud Events pages, third-party applications like New Relic, and our Logyard logging system.
This video demonstrates the settings overview and shows all available applications, services and role settings in Stackato.
Using Heroku Buildpacks
Learn how Stackato uses Heroku Buildpacks. When you push an application, Stackato's Droplet Execution Agent (DEA) prepares your application inside a Docker container for deployment.
The cluster administration page in the Stackato web console shows all of the connected nodes in the cluster. From here, you can view all of the available nodes as well as their enabled or disabled roles.
Organizations and Spaces
Organizations and Spaces are the main organizational units in which applications, services, domains, routes and users are contained. This video provides an overview of this new feature in Stackato.
