If you'd like to evaluate Stackato without downloading and setting up a Stackato VM, try the Stackato Sandbox free of charge. It's our hosted PaaS trial environment, providing the end user development experience with Stackato. You can use it for 45 days to test your applications (or our samples) on Stackato.

Be sure to download the Stackato Micro Cloud to get the full features and experience of private PaaS right on your desktop. The Stackato Micro Cloud license has been expanded to allow companies to build a cluster that uses up to 20GB of RAM. Click here to sign up for a license key. The cluster can run on your own infrastructure or public cloud and can be used for internal testing or in production for free.

Use of the Stackato Sandbox is made available for free subject to the terms and conditions of the Stackato Sandbox (& Client Software) Terms of Use Agreement.

Please sign into your ActiveState account to request access to the Stackato Sandbox.


If you require more than a 20GB cluster or you're looking for enterprise support, request a supported POC or contact an ActiveState Representative for more information about Stackato Enterprise.
