According to the Current Analysis report, WSO2 Stratos and WSO2 StratosLive together represent, “A comprehensive cloud solution for service-oriented architecture (SOA) and composite application development.” It also notes that WSO2, “Provides a solid go-to-market strategy for enticing enterprises with a complete SOA and developer platform (Stratos) through a self-service, multi-tenant, scalable runtime to support private and public infrastructures.” The Current Analysis report further observes that, “WSO2 Stratos builds on the momentum of the WSO2 Carbon product, a comprehensive, OSGi-based middleware platform that has matured over the past couple years to provide a number of capabilities required for cloud-based software deployment, including security, clustering, logging, statistics, and management.” Because WSO2 Stratos and the 100% open source WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform share the same code base, WSO2 uniquely enables developers to migrate their applications and services smoothly and safely between on-premise servers, a private PaaS, a public PaaS, and hybrid cloud environments—providing unprecedented deployment flexibility. “We are excited to be recognized by Current Analysis for our WSO2 StratosLive PaaS and WSO2 Stratos 1.5 cloud middleware platform,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder and CEO. “It is strong validation of our open standards approach and commitment to maintaining a common set of code to empower developers to deploy wherever they need, whether it’s on-premise or in private or public clouds.” About WSO2
