"This is a great day for developers and enterprises looking to the cloud," said ActiveState CEO Bart Copeland (pictured) as he announced the general availability of Stackato 1.0. 

"Stackato delivers on the promise of the cloud -- convenience, cost-efficiency -- with the security, control, and compliance the real-world enterprise demands," Copeland added.

"Stackato is about freedom, control, and ROI," continued Copeland. "Developers have the freedom to work with multiple stacks; use the best-suited tools; configure, test, and deploy faster; and ultimately build more apps. IT managers get control: They can create new apps and migrate existing ones; eliminate the risks of data silos or rogue clouds; ensure tighter security and compliance; and deploy to the cloud model that's right for their enterprise, whether that cloud is public, private, or a hybrid of both. And CIOs get return on investment: More-efficient private-PaaS app development means shorter time-to-market and better use of resources. Stackato offers an escape from vendor lock-in. And ultimately, lower costs."

With Stackato, Copeland explained, developers can simulate a production environment on a local machine, code, test, and then launch an application to any cloud. Enterprise IT can achieve new levels of data security, reduce time to market, save money, ensure compliance, and gain greater control over the cloud.

Stackato is an application platform for creating a private platform-as-a-service (PaaS) using any language on any stack on any cloud. From the desktop to the datacenter, the company claims, Stackato "makes it easy to develop, deploy, migrate, scale, manage, and monitor applications on any cloud."

Today's launch underscores Stackato's technology leadership in the private-PaaS space, and highlights how it solves real-world business challenges.
