Why Your Enterprise Needs Stackato

The Platform for the Agile Enterprise

Be the enterprise you want to be, not what you're forced to be

Stackato helps enterprises take advantage of the cloud, making them as nimble or as agile as they want to be. Virtualization alone is not enough now that you’re deploying apps to the cloud. You need the Stackato platform in order to deliver business value faster than before and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
 
Streamline Your Development Process with Automatic Provisioning
Stackato is a platform that lets you streamline your development process by automatically  provisioning the application environment.  Developers can deploy applications without assistance from IT Operations and still stay within the company’s security and compliance requirements. With Stackato the usual delays associated with the application lifecycle will be eliminated and now both teams can be more productive--your IT Operations team can focus on infrastructure and your developers can focus on coding.
 
Performance Management and Reliability
While Stackato makes it easy to deploy your applications, it makes managing them even easier. With performance management dashboards, your Operations team has complete visibility into the health of the application and can scale up or down as quickly as required. Now your operations team can manage thirty applications with the same effort it took to manage one.
 
Cloud Security
Architected with cloud security in mind, Stackato has been extended and hardened to provide enterprises with tighter security, better compliance, and more control over secure, sensitive data. Stackato uses Docker for its Linux Containers (LXC) so your applications are isolated, protecting them from security breaches that may happen on your private or public cloud.
 
Drive Innovation
Stackato fosters innovation, experimentation, and creativity by lowering the cost of mistakes.  By streamlining the development process, it’s now easier (and cheaper) for your developers to tweak and modify cloud applications. With Stackato, they can now focus on coding and improving the application, instead of provisioning the environment for it.
 
Utilizing the industry leading open-source platform-as-a-service (Paas) technology as the basis, the Stackato platform has additional functionality required by enterprises so it is easy to set-up and use right out of the box.

Stackato’s strength is that it was built with a ‘security first’ approach, which makes it appealing to enterprise buyers. It supports multiple programming languages, enabling developers to push apps from their desktops to different cloud environments.
