VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 --  ActiveState(R), whose
software enables developers and enterprises to innovate from code to
cloud, today announced that HP, the world's largest technology
company, has entered into a licensing agreement with ActiveState for
the OEM integration of ActiveState Stackato(R), the enterprise
private Platform as a Service (PaaS), with HP Cloud Services, HP's
public cloud service. With this technology integration, the HP
Application PaaS, powered by Stackato from ActiveState, will provide
the PaaS engine for HP Cloud Services.  
"HP Cloud Services creates new possibilities for developers and
enterprises to enjoy the benefits of cloud computing," notes
ActiveState CEO Bart Copeland. "Stackato brings multi-language PaaS
capabilities to HP Cloud Services. With its innovative polyglot
development support, sophisticated management controls, and
best-in-class security model for applications and data, Stackato
enhances the HP Cloud Services offerings." 
The Stackato integration provides: 

--  Agility: By reducing the time spent on IT configuration, Stackato will
    help HP Cloud users get applications to market faster. Developers can
    easily test in a production environment, self-serve, and get apps to
    the cloud in minutes, not weeks.
--  Scalability: With built-in auto-scaling, Stackato supports the
    requirements of individual developers running smaller projects, while
    having the ability to easily scale to support the mission-critical
    needs of large enterprises.
--  Freedom of choice: Stackato delivers freedom of choice and
    flexibility. Users can choose whichever data service, language, or web
    framework that works best for each application. For instance,
    enterprise developers can code in Ruby, Python, Perl, PHP, Node.JS,
    Java, and many other languages. IT Managers can deploy on LAMP, Java,
    .NET, or any other stack (and even leverage WebSockets).
--  ROI: Stackato saves time and money. Enterprises can get cloud apps to
    market faster with Stackato's innovative IT as a Service model that
    features automatic
 middleware configuration and scaling capabilities.
--  Innovation: Stackato automates the configuration, deployment, and
    management of applications, freeing enterprise teams from managing
    infrastructure resources and middleware configuration, and enabling a
    fast and simple test bed environment for all innovative ideas.
--  Security: Stackato's innovative individual-wrapper security layer uses
    Linux containerization technology to envelop each application, and
    reduce hack-once-compromise-all risks.
