ActiveGrid LAMP Open Source Stack

The LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Perl/Python) open source stack has been the technology of choice for a "scale out" architecture. LAMP provides a reliable way of deploying rich Web 2.0 applications on inexpensive clusters of commodity computers. Controlled by no single vendor and backed by broad open source global community, it now powers nearly 70% of the world’s web infrastructure.

Until now only organizations with significant expertise in handcrafting LAMP implementations could benefit from LAMP’s scalability and cost savings. The LAMP stack also lacks many of the enterprise features expected by corporate developers and deployers. ActiveGrid Enterprise LAMP applications can be flexibly deployed on grids of commodity machines or at virtually any ISP.

You’ll be up and running in less than 15 minutes. The ActiveGrid Application Builder comes with everything you need to start creating applications - including a built-in Web server, database, sample applications and a step-by-step tutorial so that you can build your first application quickly and easily. Both the ActiveGrid Application Builder and ActiveGrid LAMP Application Server are released under the flexible, open source Apache Software License 2.0.
