ActiveState announced that HP has licensed the Stackato application platform for the HP Cloud PaaS.
Stackato enables users to deploy applications on virtual application servers with automated provisioning features. It is built on top of the Cloud Foundry open source project and offers additional features that allow ActiveState to sell the solution into the enterprise market. These features include a browser-based management console, Linux containers with improved multi-tenant security and enforced app quotas, data migration tools, performance monitoring, and cluster auto-scaling.
"HP Cloud Services creates new possibilities for developers and enterprises to enjoy the benefits of cloud computing," said ActiveState CEO Bart Copeland. "Stackato brings multi-language PaaS capabilities to HP Cloud Services. With its innovative polyglot development support, sophisticated management controls, and best-in-class security model for applications and data, Stackato enhances the HP Cloud Services offerings."
ActiveState said that developers can code in Ruby, Python, Perl, PHP, Node.JS, Java, and many other languages. IT Managers can deploy on LAMP, Java, .NET, or any other stack.
