ActiveState Announces Enterprise Customer Relationship With
ExactTarget, Launches Stackato 2.4 
Global Interactive Marketing Leader ExactTarget Adopts Stackato
Private PaaS for Production Cloud Apps 
VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/01/12 --  ActiveState(R), whose
software enables developers and enterprises to innovate from code to
cloud, today announced an enterprise customer relationship with
Indianapolis-based ExactTarget, a global interactive marketing
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider. In addition, today marks the
release of Stackato(R) 2.4, the next evolution in enterprise private
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) technology. 
"ExactTarget's 'Orange Culture' embodies its commitment to
innovation," said ActiveState CEO Bart Copeland. "In the same way
ExactTarget is revolutionizing digital marketing, ActiveState is
transforming the cloud with Stackato, the enterprise private PaaS." 
Stackato is the industry-standard enterprise private PaaS, and it
enables developers to code in the language that's right for them,
provides best-in-class management tools for IT leads, and delivers
compelling workflow productivity gains for CIOs. ExactTarget --
recently recognized by Software Magazine as one of the fastest
growing software companies in the world -- has deployed Stackato for
its production cloud applications. 
"ExactTarget engineers must have the freedom to innovate," said Ian
Murdock, vice president, platform at ExactTarget. "Stackato makes it
easier and faster for our teams to develop and deploy cloud apps,
letting them focus on their own imagination rather than configuration
or administration." 
"The agile enterprise needs a path to the cloud, and Stackato gets it
there quickly, securely, and efficiently," continued Copeland, who
notes that ActiveState has signed several other enterprise Stackato
customers in the past quarter. "We're seeing traction for Stackato in
many different industries, including high tech, aerospace, media and
entertainment, telecommunications, and financial services." 
ActiveState -- recently named one of SD Times' "2013 Companies to
Watch" -- continues to advance PaaS technology: Today's announcement
coincides with the release of Stackato 2.4, the latest update to the
industry-leading enterprise private PaaS solution. Version 2.4
highlights include:  

--  "Skinnable" UI
     OEM partners -- particularly cloud hosting providers
    -- can now implement Stackato with a customized look and feel. For
    instance, the Stackato 2.4 Management Console can be "themed" with OEM
    partner logo, colors, and branding.
--  Improved logging
     Logs can be aggregated from multiple nodes to a
    central location, and then forwarded to third-party logging solutions
    like Loggly, Papertrail, or Splunk.
--  Easier, more powerful user administration
     Administrators can now
    import or export users and groups via the command-line or console
--  SPDY in the Stackato WebSocket library
     The 2.4 release further
    extends Stackato's WebSocket capabilities: Stackato's
    second-generation Node.js-based router now includes support for
    Google's SPDY protocol.

Stackato 2.4 is available in Enterprise and Micro Cloud editions. The
Micro Cloud edition is free, and can be deployed to a production
server (with a 4GB memory limit). Stackato is also available on
Amazon EC2 and most other cloud service providers. Learn more at
