ActivePython: Python That Just Works

Recognized as today’s fastest-growing programming language, Python is used by millions of developers for web application development, data science and machine learning. But as enterprises have adopted Python, so have they struggled with open source license compliance, security, support and maintaining consistent environments.

ActivePython provides a complete, out of the box Python solution. With more than 300 of the top third-party packages curated and precompiled, and support from the open source language experts, ActivePython lets you focus on progress with a Python distribution that “just works”.

ActivePython is available in the following editions:

  • Community Edition: Free for development and internal testing.
  • Business Edition: Production use and commercial support for small environments.
  • Enterprise Edition: Production use and priority support for large environments. Older Python versions (2.5, 2.6, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4), support for big iron (Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX), custom builds, consultation and legal indemnification.
  • OEM Licensing: Royalty-free redistribution of ActivePython in commercial applications.
