Stackato Micro Cloud will continue to be free

Stackato will continue free of charge for developers to use as their own private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution on a single node.

The company behind Stackato, ActiveState, all their products use open source community driven proujects and solutions.

Stackato is based on the open source Cloud Foundry project and is a private PaaS that gives developers cloud deployment options for PHP, Java, Python, Ruby, Perl, Node.js, Scala, and Clojure applications.

In short Stackato allows developer design, develop and test cloud based solutions that will either run on an internal private cloud driven by a hypervision such as VMWare or else on an external cloud infrastructure provider IAAS such as Amazon EC2.

With Stackato Micro Clouds developers can design, build, reengineer and test new or existing applications that may be suitable for cloud on their own private cloud.
