HP Licenses PaaS Technology from Vancouver’s ActiveState for Cloud Services

HP has entered into a licensing agreement with Vancouver-based ActiveState. The agreement will see OEM integration of ActiveState’s enterprise platform-as-a-service, called Stackato, with HP Cloud Services.

The Stackato integration provides HP Cloud Services with key benefits: a reduction in time spent on IT configuration means developers can work exponentially faster; the freedom to choose whichever data service, language, or web framework they prefer; and Linux containerization technology enveloping each application to reduce hack-once-compromise-all risks.

“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.”

More than two million developers use ActiveState solutions to develop, distribute, and manage their apps. HP is added to a list of global customers including Cisco, Siemens, and the Bank of America.
