Coming Soon: ActiveLua – The World’s Best Lua Distribution

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 NASA, Adobe, NGINX, Mercedes Benz, and Mozilla have already embraced Lua within their development teams, and a wide range of developers already use Lua for its light-weight scripting, web development, image processing capabilities, and for embedded device programming such as  IoT (Internet of Things) devices.

With the introduction of ActiveLua™, ActiveState will offer the same great service and support to Lua developers that we’ve been providing to other open source language communities for decades.

With ActiveLua you’ll benefit from:

  • Quality assured builds of precompiled Lua 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 Lua and community support? Your business needs a Lua 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 ActiveLua for the development, management, and distribution solutions for Lua.

ActiveState will offer these solutions for Lua development:

  • ActiveLua Community Edition
  • ActiveLua Business Edition
  • ActiveLua Enterprise Edition

Coming soon: ActiveLua

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

Fail-Safe ActiveLua for Business and Mission-Critical Applications

With ActiveState’s commercial-grade ActiveLua, you won’t need to depend on overworked internal resources or public Lua communities to solve issues.

And, if you are looking for access to legacy Lua, need to install on big iron (eg. AIX, Solaris, or HP-UX), or use Lua beyond development, you’ll want to look at our ActiveLua Enterprise and Business Edition solutions.

ActiveLua Enterprise Edition is designed for businesses with large Lua deployments in essential, mission-critical applications that, when down, could cost your business in lost revenue and a damaged reputation. Deploy Lua 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 Lua experts for technical support and best practices guidance. Plus, enjoy guaranteed Intellectual Property (IP) indemnification to reduce risk in today’s business environment.

ActiveLua Business Edition will provide an affordable solution for small- and mid-sized teams that need fail-safe Lua 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 Lua.

Turn-Key Lua Redistribution Rights

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

Community-Friendly Lua

ActiveLua Community Edition will be a free, ready-to-install Lua 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 beyond development (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 ActiveLua Community Edition will be offered through the community and forums only.
