This past week, development and language tools vendor ActiveState announced their Stackato PaaS, based on the open source VMware Cloud Foundry project.
Stackato initially supports perl and python, two languages for which ActiveState has commercial support and tooling products. From an ActiveState perspective, Stackato can be leveraged as part of a build and deploy solution. ActiveState develops the Komodo IDE for development.
“Stackato is a cloud platform that supports several application frameworks and data services that can be deployed by organizations either on their own private cloud (e.g., VMware vSphere) or on any IaaS provider like Amazon or Rackspace,” Diane Mueller, director enterprise product management at ActiveState Software told InternetNews.com.
