ActiveState Joins Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA) to Support KVM
ActiveState, the dynamic language experts offering solutions for Perl, Python, Tcl and other web languages, today announced its continued commitment to promote the development of Stackato, its platform for creating a private PaaS, as a hypervisor and infrastructure-agnostic platform by joining the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA). ActiveState joins leading virtualization and cloud solution providers in the OVA to foster adoption and promote third-party solutions around Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) as an open virtualization alternative to proprietary solutions.

"We are very pleased to welcome ActiveState into the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA)," said Scott Crenshaw, vice president and general manager, Cloud Business Unit at Red Hat and a founding member of the Open Virtualization Alliance. "The support for the Open Virtualization Alliance from industry leaders and innovators shows the widespread interest in KVM as an open virtualization alternative. KVM delivers leading performance, scalability and security, making it a compelling alternative to proprietary virtualization technologies."

"We built Stackato as a private PaaS solution that doesn't tie companies to one single infrastructure or hypervisor product. We want to give our customers flexibility and choice. By joining the Open Virtualization Alliance, we are proud to show our ongoing commitment to work with the widest array of hypervisor and infrastructure solutions to provide the options our users are demanding," said Bart Copeland, President & CEO at ActiveState.

Stackato is currently in Beta, open to developers and cloud administrators to try as a micro cloud (VM) or in a sandbox on Amazon EC2. To sign up for the Stackato beta program:
