Submission + - Perl and Python float on open source VMware cloud (

jcasman writes: "From The Register: On Thursday, ActiveState released an early implementation of VMware's open source Cloud Foundry, which ActiveState promised would help reduce the effort of migrating Python and Perl apps from a VMware environment behind the firewall to a public or private VMware cloud.

ActiveState's implementation, a service it calls Stackato, also introduces early tooling to debug and test new applications built using Python and Perl for VMware clouds.

Stackato also works with Node.JS, the fashionable server-side JavaScript platform based on the Google V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js is being hailed as what Ruby on Rails could or should have been."
