New WSO2 Carbon Release Adds Multi-Tenancy, Self-Service, and Ability to Run on WSO2 Stratos Cloud Platform; Enhances Cloud Security; and Expands Big Data Support Palo Alto, CA – December 19, 2012 – Fewer enterprises are locking themselves into one deployment model. Instead, they are implementing applications on-premise, in the cloud, and in hybrid environments—depending on the model that best suits their privacy, service-level agreement (SLA), and requirements for a given project. WSO2 provides these organizations unprecedented deployment flexibility with today’s launch of WSO2 Carbon 4.0, the industry’s first enterprise middleware platform designed from the core to run both on-premise and in the cloud. WSO2 also announced today:
- Updates to the major WSO2 Carbon 4.0 products with added capabilities for cloud integration, security, auto-scaling, big data, and high availability (HA).
- WSO2 Stratos 1.6, the newest release of WSO2’s cloud middleware platform, which enables enterprises to deploy a platform-as-a-service (PaaS).
- New release of WSO2 StratosLive, the PaaS hosted by WSO2, which is powered by WSO2 Stratos 1.6 and WSO2 Carbon 4.0 software.
- Tenant-aware and service-aware load balancing provides a scalable approach for balancing the load across a set of tenants sharing a collection of worker nodes, and it enables balancing across shared service clusters or different service clusters.
- Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) independent elasticity supports widely adopted platforms, such as Amazon Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2), Eucalyptus, Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, OpenStack, and VMware ESX.
- Cloud bursting to hybrid clouds lets enterprises extend their data center’s processing capabilities by leveraging the compute power available on public clouds, such as Amazon EC2. Bursting can span across public and private clouds using different IaaS providers at the same time.
- Elastic scaling of worker nodes makes it possible to start or terminate nodes based on need; scaling can occur simultaneously across multiple underlying IaaS.
- “Private jet” mode for tenants allows some tenants to deploy in a single-tenant mode; clusters are isolated for special privileges, such as priority processing, user- based customized actions, and improved performance.
- Dynamic Discovery allows WSO2 ESB to dynamically discover worker nodes, add or remove nodes without restarting the system, and add or remove entire clusters dynamically.
