HP signs deal to acquire Stackato business from ActiveState

HP announced its deal to acquire ActiveState Software Inc.’s Stackato business, a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution.

ActiveState’s Stackato business will become part of HP Cloud after necessary approvals, said HP in a statement.

The enterprise IT vendor in a statement said that ActiveState is a provider of open source software application development and management solutions.
HP can offer a better cloud offering thanks to Stackato’s open technology built on Cloud Foundry PaaS. Developers will benefit from a single cloud application platform with enterprise-level security and support.

Stackato technology can enhance the HP Helion Development Platform by enabling customers to bring applications to market faster by reducing the time spent on IT configuration.

“The Stackato PaaS solution strengthens the HP Helion portfolio and reinforces HP’s commitment to delivering customers open source solutions that help accelerate their transition to hybrid clouds,” said Bill Hilf, senior vice president, Product and Service Management, HP Cloud.
