ActiveState Announces Stackato Partner Program

Cloudscaling, Cloud Technology Partners, BestIT Inaugurate New Stackato Partner Ecosystem

VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- ActiveState®, whose software enables developers and enterprises to innovate from code to cloud, today announced the Stackato® Partner Program. The program pairs ActiveState's groundbreaking PaaS technology Stackato with industry-leading infrastructure technologies and services. The first group of partners in the new Stackato Partner ecosystem includes cloud infrastructure leader Cloudscaling, cloud-development services provider Cloud Technology Partners, and cloud IT services provider BestIT.

Under terms of their respective Stackato partnerships, OpenStack infrastructure providers Cloudscaling and Cloud Technology Partners will endorse Stackato as a component in integrated technology solution delivery. IT services firm BestIT will resell Stackato PaaS technology.

"Envisioning, establishing, and engaging a broad ISV and VAR partner community is essential to serving private cloud needs," said ActiveState CEO Bart Copeland. "Cloudscaling, Cloud Technology Partners, and BestIT are innovators and leaders, making them ideal partners for delivering the Stackato technology platform to enterprise cloud customers."

"Today's enterprise demands efficiency from its cloud," noted Shannon Blood, BestIT's Director of Marketing and Communications, "and PaaS technology helps realize that efficiency. We see tremendous value in partnering with ActiveState to deliver integrated cloud solutions to our mutual customers."

With the launch of the Stackato Partner Program, ActiveState is collaborating with two recognized leaders in the OpenStack community in Cloudscaling and Cloud Technology Partners. These partnerships, along with the recent announcement of ActiveState's OEM partnership with HP, underscore Stackato's growing market dominance for enterprise private cloud deployments.

San Francisco-based Cloudscaling offers reliable, scalable, and production-grade solutions for elastic cloud infrastructure powered by OpenStack. "Our enterprise customers expect the same capabilities and performance they're accustomed to on a public cloud, but with an on-premise solution," said Randy Bias, Cloudscaling CTO and co-founder. "Stackato enables Cloudscaling to offer an even broader, integrated solution deployable in the customer's datacenter and under the IT team's control."

Cloud Technology Partners provides enterprises with vendor-independent consulting, implementation, and technology services to plan and execute the migration of business processes, applications, and data to cloud computing models. "Stackato from ActiveState delivers on the promise of enterprise PaaS, and it aligns with our core principle for minimizing vendor lock-in because it can be deployed on any cloud infrastructure -- public or private," said John Treadway, vice president of Cloud Technology Partners. "Stackato complements our rapidly-growing OpenStack infrastructure practice, and is a supported PaaS offering within our SpeedPaaS governance and migration estimation solution."
