Does the license allow the PerlDevKit-compiled-Community-version-perl-EXE on production VMs?

We plan to use stakato as the cloud service and generate VMs on demand.

When the Perl Dev Kit is used to wrap an application, the wrapped file can be freely distributed and installed anywhere.

Stackato, and some other cloud services, use containers. Containers are evolving, and your application may, or may not, work inside current container technology.

There are two additional notes:

- The exemption grant for wrapped applications does not allow to the application to expose the interpreter, or act in a way that is indistinguishable from an exposed interpreter.
- Stackato also has a license. Your use of Stackato must remain within the terms of the Stackato license.
