ActiveState Premieres Animated Short Film "Stackato: Moving to the Cloud Is Fast, Easy and Awesome"
VANCOUVER, BC, Apr 17, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
ActiveState, whose software enables developers and enterprises to
innovate from code to cloud, today premiered its first animated short
film. The video showcases Stackato, the application platform for
creating a private PaaS using any language, on any stack and on any
"This is a fun way to introduce Stackato to developers and
enterprises," says Toph Whitmore, Vice President of Marketing at
ActiveState. "Viewers will smile and I hope laugh! But more
importantly, they will 'get' private PaaS and they will get how
Stackato makes moving to the cloud fast, easy and awesome."
Using wry humor, witty tone and playful animation, the
two-and-a-half-minute short chronicles the adventures (and
misadventures) of Carl, Ned and Cynthia -- a developer, DevOps lead
and CIO, respectively -- as they confront the hard realities of
implementing cloud computing in the enterprise. Carl codes, then
recodes, and then recodes again, all in a futile effort to get his
mission-critical apps to work in the cloud. Ned struggles mightily to
maintain uptime while frantically provisioning new cloud
infrastructure. Cynthia watches her costs climb as her team works
twice as hard to achieve pre-cloud productivity levels.
But then the trio discovers Stackato, the private-PaaS solution from
ActiveState that makes moving to the cloud fast, easy and awesome.
With Stackato, Carl develops his cloud apps in the language that's
right for him. Ned now deploys apps in minutes, not weeks. And
Cynthia finally sees ROI... and ultimately, the promise of the cloud
"Organizations moving to the cloud face daunting development,
operational and management challenges," notes ActiveState's Whitmore.
"Carl, Ned and Cynthia each put a human face to those challenges, and
it is great to see them succeed with Stackato."
ActiveState will show the video at this week's Cloud Fair Conference
in Seattle (http://www.cloudfairconference.com). The conference also
features ActiveState's cloud evangelist, Diane Mueller, who will
speak on Thursday, April 19th about how enterprises can achieve
application portability in the cloud.
