Get Started with Microservices and PaaS
Presenters: John Wetherill, ActiveState Technology Evangelist, and Phil Whelan, ActiveState Technology Evangelist
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is an essential component of the microservices toolset. It can accelerate and facilitate microservices development and help you achieve your goals of agile and flexible development. Join John Wetherill and Phil Whelan as they discuss how to practically implement microservices in your organization using PaaS.

Microservices Tips & Tricks
Phil Whelan, Software Architect and John Wetherill Technology Evangelist
Microservices based architectures are in the spotlight due to their powerful and sophisticated practices enabling streamlined application development and deployment. Transitioning to a this approach requires technical expertise and organizational buy-in. In this webinar, John Wetherill and Phil Whelan discuss a number of tips and tricks to help you transition to and get the most out a microservices based approach.
PaaS: How to Complete the Vision of Virtualization
Bernard Golden, VP of Strategy, ActiveState and Rodney Brown, Editor, The Mobility Hub
Virtualization and cloud computing has had an enormous impact on enterprise IT. They have enabled greater utilization of infrastructure resources, portability of execution environments, and better infrastructure economics. However, neither has fully realized the true value of IT in terms of cloud application management. PaaS represents the future of virtualization and cloud computing, and delivers on the promise of application value.
Aspect of Microservices: Rolling Upgrades and Fall Back Using PaaS
Phil Whelan, Technology Evangelist and John Wetherill Technology Evangelist
The arrival of microservices architecture heralds a new era in application development. Instead of the traditional monolithic processes, applications are comprised of a number of small, independent composable services. In this webinar, John Wetherill and Phil Whelan discuss rolling upgrades and fallback, and how they are simplified and facilitated by PaaS.
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.

The Missing Platform in Your Software Launch
The Promise of the Cloud, Delivered
IT Guide to PaaS
The advent of cloud computing has changed the demands on traditional IT. Responding to market needs, scaling to demand, and enabling continuous application evolution is going to be the standard going forward for IT.
PaaS: The Foundation of Enterprise DevOps
The true goal of IT is to deliver increased business value through technology, companies need to focus on creating, delivering, and operating applications more efficiently. The DevOps movement is beginning to recognize how PaaS can help.
To meet the challenges of today’s digital economy, companies need to understand the workload portability choices available, what options they have, and the challenges they may face in application deployment.
Best Practices for PaaS Implementation
Like any IT project, the success of a private PaaS implementation requires a combination of the right people, processes and technologies. This paper outlines some best practices based on successful implementations with clients.

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.
