ActiveState is shipping an upgrade to its Stackato application platform for creating a private and secure Platform as a Service (PaaS). Stackato 2.0 adds a wide range of enterprise-ready features to support key phrases of the cloud apps lifecycle, including expanded multi-language support to include .NET apps, web-based visual cluster management and improves performance.
Stackato’s architecture is based on the Cloud Foundry open source project, and the latest Stackato 2.0 features are extensions to optimize support for mission-criticality and rapid testing and provisioning, ActiveState’s CEO Bart Copeland told IDN.
The Stackato 2.0 upgrade comes only a few months after ActiveState first rolled out Stackato private PaaS. The upgrade reflects the fact that IT wants vendors to provide them with enterprise-class solutions that can let them use the cloud to do more than simply save on hardware.
“We’re seeing enterprise customers are looking for cloud solutions that can do more than save on hardware. Today, they’re looking for how the cloud can help them innovate, and make their applications more agile and better engineered,” Copeland said. Enterprise IT is also looking for better ways to govern those apps in the cloud, he added.APPLICATION INTEGRATION
