ActiveState Named a Gartner Research "Cool Vendor in PaaS"
VANCOUVER, BC, Apr 17, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) --
ActiveState(R), whose software enables developers and enterprises to
innovate from code to cloud, today announced it has been named a
Gartner Research "Cool Vendor in PaaS" for 2013. In its "Cools
Vendors in PaaS, 2013" report released yesterday, the global research
firm profiles ActiveState and its flagship cloud middleware
technology Stackato(R), the private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for
the agile enterprise.
"It's great to be recognized as a cool vendor in PaaS," says
ActiveState CEO Bart Copeland. "This acknowledgement validates our
approach, and highlights just some of Stackato's innovative features.
But what's really cool is how enterprise customers like ExactTarget,
Mozilla, and HP use Stackato to transform cloud deployment to get
products to market faster, manage applications more securely, and
save money in the process."
In the report, Gartner analyst Ian Finley describes Stackato as a
"powerful private PaaS in a box," and highlights Stackato's
auto-scaling, service-provisioning APIs, and management console.
Finley notes Stackato's hybrid-cloud and polyglot capabilities,
commenting that enterprises should consider Stackato if their PaaS
must "leverage both internal and external cloud resources (hybrid
cloud) and support multiple language environments."
"From the beginning, we architected Stackato to be flexible and
extensible," adds ActiveState Director of Product Management Brent
Smithurst. "Our recent 2.10 release exemplifies that with its Oracle
DB add-on and support for development frameworks like Java, Python,
Perl, PHP, and node.js. That makes it easy for DevOps to deploy PaaS
in the enterprise, and even easier for that enterprise to start
realizing immediate value from Stackato."
Stackato 2.10 is available in an enterprise edition, a micro cloud
edition, as a sandbox trial, or on public clouds like AWS or HPCS.
