Vancouver, BC – December 12, 2013 – ActiveState®, providers of the leading application platform for the agile enterprise, announced today the release of Stackato v3.0. This final release follows up on last month’s v3.0 beta and is based on the Cloud Foundry v2 trunk, includes Docker containers, new social DevOps functionality called Activity Stream, OpenStack compatibility improvements, and an all new web management console.
Stackato allows agile enterprises to develop and deploy software solutions faster than ever before and manage them more effectively. Designed to streamline the development process and overcome resource challenges faced by enterprise IT organizations, Stackato helps remove barriers between development, QA, deployment, and operational teams by providing a unified self-service IT platform on any infrastructure that allows enterprises to quickly deploy, scale, and manage applications written with any language or software stack.
“We saw how broken the application development process was and knew that there was a better way. We leveraged the Cloud Foundry and Docker open source projects, but we added features to Stackato so it would be more accessible to enterprises,” stated Bart Copeland ActiveState CEO. “The current talk in the media about the uncertainty of the PaaS market is unfortunate because it’s misguided and doesn’t reflect the reality of private PaaS. Companies have reduced deployment time from weeks to minutes and enable more innovation in their company by using Stackato. That’s what a private PaaS should do and that’s what Stackato does—it is about making the enterprise agile.”
Stackato is trusted by agile enterprise IT departments who want to provide their developers with an easy to use and powerful deployment platform in their own private data center. Since its launch in 2012, Stackato has developed a healthy enterprise customer base in a variety of industries and attracted a number of high profile partners in the cloud computing space. Andrei Yurkevich, CTO of Altoros commented, “As a member of the Cloud Foundry community we welcome Stackato v3.0. With its release, ActiveState addresses many real-life needs of enterprise IT customers and brings them one step closer to complex hybrid deployments across public and private clouds.”
One of the new features in Stackato v3.0 is Activity Stream. Designed to support companies looking to implement a DevOps methodology in their organization, Activity Stream allows developers and IT operations staff to communicate and coordinate tasks directly on a social timeline, improving communication within and between these groups. This real-time view for enterprise cloud management allows stakeholders to see a unified information stream across multiple applications.
Additional features in Stackato v3.0 include an all new web management console for improved performance and usability, dashboards for easier visibility into Stackato’s performance, as well as the latest versions of all packaged services and runtimes. In Stackato v3.0, customers will be able to perform in-place version upgrades as newer versions of the platform are released.
