ActiveState has launched ActiveState Business Edition, commercial-grade language distributions for Perl, Python and Tcl, providing organizations open source compliance, commercial support, and cross-platform access.
ActiveState Business Edition integrates commercial Perl, Python and Tcl support with access to platform builds and repositories for AIX, Solaris and HP-UX as well as to older versions across all platforms. ActiveState Business Edition is ideal for finance, aerospace & defense, and government organizations that have deployments of Perl, Python or Tcl in business-critical applications.
"ActiveState has been a leading contributor in the open source community for years," says ActiveState's Bart Copeland. "With the launch of Business Edition, we can help companies deploying Perl, Python and Tcl in their business-critical applications, ensure open source policy compliance, minimize downtime and accelerate productivity cost-effectively. ActiveState's deep technical expertise is focused on keeping client systems, powered by dynamic languages, running smoothly and making sure clients are in compliance with their open source policies."
ActiveState Business Edition features include:
- Exclusive access to AIX, Solaris, HP-UX platform builds and repositories:ActiveState Business Edition for ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl provides exclusive access to quality assured builds and repositories for AIX, Solaris and HP-UX in addition to Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.
- Access to older versions across all platforms: While ActiveState Business Edition for ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl offers organizations the newest and most secure releases, customer IT environments periodically rely on previous versions. ActiveState offers access to older versions of dynamic language and can upgrade when a customer needs it. Some clients use ActiveState to test products against any release version as well.
- Fast and easy management of AIX, Solaris, HP-UX modules: Along with exclusive access to AIX, Solaris and HP-UX modules, customers receive access to the package manager for ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl (PPM, PyPM and Teapot respectively). These package managers simplify the job of finding and installing pre-built language modules or extensions, saving time and effort.
