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.

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.


Please contact us if you need to run Stackato in an autoscaling cluster, in a production environment that requires more than 4GB memory, or with a comprehensive support package.
