Buildpacks are the primary method for deploying applications in Stackato. In essence a buildpack is a network-available directory containing a handful of configuration scripts used to set up containers to provision cloud applications. Developed by Heroku, buildpacks are part of the Cloud Foundry v2 architecture.
