Companies are embracing open source for business- and mission-critical systems. However, it's important to understand and mitigate the risks associated with open source.

At ActiveState, we know the challenges companies face and for 20 years we've been providing precompiled, supported, quality-assured, secure language distributions used by millions of developers around the world.

Companies like Atlassian, Docker, Google, DigitalOcean, eBay, and Heroku have already embraced Go (Google Golang) within their development teams, and a wide range of developers already use Go for web services, networking, and fast  systems development.

With the introduction of ActiveGo™, ActiveState will offer the same great service and support to Go developers that we've been providing to the Perl, Python, and Tcl communities for decades.

With ActiveGo you’ll benefit from:

  • Quality assured builds of precompiled Go distributions
  • Commercially supported software with SLAs
  • Support and active maintenance of older versions
  • Software you can standardize on
  • Faster time to market

Why take risks with open source Go and community support? Your business needs a Go distribution that has passed through a professional QA process and has regular security releases with quality commercial support. Join the millions of developers and Fortune 1000 companies who use ActiveState's language distributions--choose ActiveGo for the development, management, and distribution solutions for Go.

ActiveState will offer these solutions for Go development:

  • ActiveGo Community Edition
  • ActiveGo Business Edition
  • ActiveGo Enterprise Edition
  • ActiveGo OEM
  • Komodo IDE with basic Go support

ActiveGo aims to be the industry-standard, commercial-grade Go distribution used by developers around the world for easy Go installation and quality-assured code. Whether you're using Go for mission-critical applications or open source projects, ActiveGo offers worry-free implementation and significant time savings over open source Go for installing and managing common Go packages. ActiveGo comes precompiled for out-of-the-box installation and includes core Go, popular packages, and complete documentation.


With ActiveState's commercial-grade ActiveGo, you won't need to depend on overworked internal resources or public Go communities to solve issues.

And, if you are looking for access to legacy Go, need to install on big iron (eg. AIX, Solaris, or HP-UX), or want to install on production servers, you'll want to look at our ActiveGo Enterprise and Business Edition solutions.

ActiveGo Enterprise Edition is designed for businesses with large Go deployments in essential, mission-critical applications that, when down, could cost your business in lost revenue and a damaged reputation. Deploy Go with confidence knowing you're using the most secure, enterprise-grade builds for the platforms that power your business. You'll get priority access to our Go experts for technical support and best practices guidance. Plus, enjoy guaranteed Intellectual Property (IP) indemnification to reduce risk in today's business environment.

ActiveGo Business Edition will provide an affordable solution for small- and mid-sized teams that need fail-safe Go for business applications, but don't require advanced features like indemnification or site-wide licensing. Business Edition customers trust ActiveState's guaranteed technical support and regular fixes and updates to ensure they're using the most secure, high-performance Go.

Turn-Key Go Redistribution Rights

ActiveGo OEM Edition will allow you to include ActiveGo in your distributed application to provide customers with a seamless experience. ActiveGo OEM Edition takes the complexity out of open source licensing by guaranteeing assurance and eliminating legal risk that goes along with distributing Go in commercial applications. If you’re interested in redistributing ActiveGo within your code or applications, contact us for licensing options.

Community-Friendly Go

ActiveGo Community Edition will be a free, ready-to-install Go distribution for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, designed for community developers or open source projects that are not business- or mission-critical. It can not be used on production machines (Business or Enterprise Editions are needed for anything other than dev/test),  nor does it include access to builds for HP-UX, Solaris, or AIX (only available in Enterprise). Support for ActiveGo Community Edition will be offered through the community and forums only.
