HP Brings PaaS To CloudSystem

HP is  dipping into the PaaS market with its new HP Cloud Application Platform-as-a-Service offering. The HP PaaS leverages technology from the Stackato PaaS from ActiveState. Stackato in turn is based on VMware's open source CloudFoundry PaaS and provides some additional language and development capabilities.

"Stackato brings multi-language PaaS capabilities to HP Cloud Services," ActiveState CEO Bart Copeland said in a statement. "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."

HP's CloudSystem was last updated earlier this year with the ability to burst across private and public cloud infrastructures. The new set of updates announced this week goes a step further with the Cloud Service Automation (CSA) 3.1 release.

Saar Gillai, Senior vice president, Converged Cloud at HP, explained to ServerWatch that CSA has been improved with additional capabilities for scaling and high-availability.
