Packagecloud partners with StackStorm to support the OSS community

Introduction

We strive to assist the open-source community whenever we can. So, when long-time customer StackStorm switched from our Pro Plan to open-source, we were happy to provide our Free for Open Source hosting and delivery solution.

                

We're proud to announce our partnership with StackStorm as an infrastructure partner to ship its deb/rpm installation packages for our open source community.

               

Increase delivery efficiency and security with Packagecloud's cloud-based package hosting and distribution solution.

Who is StackStorm?

StackStorm is an open-source event-driven automation platform hosted under the Linux Foundation governance. The company supports the Infrastructure as Code (IaC) DevOps approach, primarily focusing on events-based workflows.

               

StackStorm-Packagecloud History

StackStorm has used Packagecloud since 2015 for its enterprise clients on top of the open-source project core. Some of StackStorm's enterprise clients include Cisco, NASA, Netflix, Target, and Pearson.

                 

StackStorm chose Packagecloud for its enterprise offerings because the package manager was robust, provided automated access with well-documented APIs and private repositories.

                   

StackStorm's Enterprise ST2_LICENSE is a Packagecloud API token created for each client to provide automated access to the private repository.

                   

This setup worked great, and during the years, we didn't see any issues, stability, or availability problems from the Packagecloud. It just worked!Eugen Cusmaunsa, Engineer & Maintainer at StackStorm.                     

                            

Packagecloud-StackStorm 2021 Partnership

In early 2021, StackStorm transferred to the Linux Foundation, which meant converting private code to open-source and integrating it into the project's core. Packagecloud agreed to deliver the deb/rpm packages under our Free for Open Source program.

           

StackStorm liked Packagecloud's API-driven design, so they created an integration pack in the StackStorm Exchange: stackstorm-packagecloud. The extensive API allowed StackStorm to fully integrate Packagecloud into its CI/CD release pipelines promoting the deb/rpm packages from staging/unstable to stable repository streams, thus automating the packaging and entire software distribution process.

               

A significant advantage for StackStorm is that they don't need to switch platforms or provide a new repository URL.

              

We can stick with the original https://packagecloud.io/StackStorm/ as a deb/rpm repository frontline. With 4.5k Github stars and many years being an industry leader in event-driven automation, the project gained significant adoption and trust from the enterprises. And so stability is something users expect from us.Eugen Cusmaunsa, Engineer & Maintainer at StackStorm

                  

We are pleased to offer a package delivery solution and honored that StackStorm recognizes the arrangement under its Partnership Program.

                        

We're happy to partner with Packagecloud and want to thank them for providing Free for OpenSource license to host & distribute our deb/rpm packages and glad to recommend the Packagecloud product to our community enterprise.packagecloud.io for package/repository hosting as it worked flawlessly for us during all these years.Eugen Cusmaunsa, Engineer & Maintainer at StackStorm.
