ActiveState Announces Stackato Partner Program
VANCOUVER, BC, Jan 15, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
ActiveState(R), whose software enables developers and enterprises to
innovate from code to cloud, today announced the Stackato(R) 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
"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."
