I’ve been really positive about Cloud Foundry, seeing it as doing the sort of things for PaaS that OpenStack does for IaaS. If Cloud Foundry succeeds in its aim, Organizations will have a PaaS solution that they can use where they want, with whichever cloud provider they want and with many different languages and frameworks.

Anyway, Stackato is an infrastructure-agnostic PaaS built on top of Cloud Foundry. It extends Cloud Foundry and enables a private PaaS for Python, Java, Ruby,PHP, Perl, and Node.js applications. As a solution for organizations worried about data in the public cloud, Stackato enables customers to deploy an application to either a full public or a private internal cloud

Focusing on the private arena means that Stackato needs to provide some functionality that is important to enterprise users and in line with this, they are today rolling out some additions to he product;

  • New Admin Dashboard: The Stackato Admin Dashboard now offers visibility into the activity and events in a private cloud to help administrators better manage usage
  • Application Monitoring with New Relic integration: Earlier this year, ActiveState announced its partnership with New Relic to provide real-time application monitoring. New Relic Standard Edition is now integrated with Stackato for Java, PHP, Python and Ruby applications and is included in Stackato’s standard pricing
  • Improvements in Java deployment to Stackato from Spring Tool Suite (STS) and Eclipse: ActiveState enables Java developers to use their existing desktop development environments to deploy directly from their desktop to the cloud.

The offering is now out of private beta and is fully open to any cloud/IT administrators or developers that want to try or test a private PaaS.

Many of us have long said that PaaS holds the future of cloud services – given that large enterprises are till reluctant to move stuff en masse to the public cloud, offering such as Stackato will help broaden the appeal and usage of PaaS. the functionality they’re rolling out today will help allay the concerns and fears of potential users.
