I'm extremely happy, actually overjoyed, to announce that HP has acquired the Stackato product from ActiveState! Stackato is our platform (or PaaS) for enterprise IT departments and developers, based on various open source projects, including Cloud Foundry and Docker. Members of the team will be joining HP to help continue to grow Stackato as part of HP’s Cloud business. ActiveState will continue as a company and will retain all of our other products including ActivePerl, ActivePython, ActiveTcl, and Komodo IDE.
Bart Copeland is our CEO and president. He's passionate about ensuring that everyone at ActiveState has a lot of fun while solving complex problems with applications that provide real benefit to our customers. He holds an MBA in Technology Management from the University of Phoenix and a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of British Columbia.
