Today ActiveState released a new version of their Stackato PaaS built on Cloud Foundry. In this new version they’ve done a spectacular job integrating the Iron Foundry code into the solution, just add a Windows DEA and you’re set.
Diane Mueller (@pythondj) put together a deep dive using the new Stackato Release with .NET Support, check out “How to Deploy .NET Apps to Stackato 2.0“. You no longer need to take the steps previously written about, instead the integration is now basically plug and play. Stay tuned for more information about this and further Iron Foundry integration work. We’ve got some good material coming your way.
Let’s take a quick tour of Stackato with Iron Foundry. When you boot up the Stackato VM you’ll be able to navigate to the Stackato Admin site.
Once launched login with your account and you’ll be brought tot the Overview screen. One of the beauties of the Stackato Deploy is this administration interface that they’ve built at ActiveState. It really eases the way to get a high level overview of what is going on in your PaaS Environment.
When an Iron Foundry DEA VM is added ASP.NET shows up on the runtimes list (awesome!)
At this point you can deploy a .NET application alongside any other application you have in your Stackato PaaS Environment using Iron Foundry.
If you have any feedback for Stackato or how Iron Foundry Project should be integrated in or other ideas please let us know.
