Structure attendees who visit the WSO2 booth for a WSO2 Stratos demo can also get an advance copy of a new white paper, “Cloud Native: Essential Characteristics of Platform-as-a-Service Offerings.” The paper introduces a model for assessing the inherent capabilities of cloud platforms, assisting enterprise developers to deliver their applications with the full benefits of software-as-a-service (SaaS) to their users.About WSO2 Stratos Cloud Platform
WSO2 Stratos builds on and extends the award-winning WSO2 Carbon open source middleware platform to offer organizations a fully hosted application platform-as-a-service (PaaS). WSO2 Stratos manages and deploys key services based on WSO2's production-quality runtime engines. Today, these include an enterprise service bus (ESB), portals, application server, identity management, governance and registry. Because WSO2 Stratos is based on WSO2 Carbon, applications can be migrated on premise, to a private cloud or to the public cloud. This provides unprecedented deployment flexibility, and for the first time, lets enterprises smoothly and safely migrate to the cloud—without the complexity or fear of vendor lock-in.
WSO2 Stratos, through its integration layer, installs onto any existing cloud infrastructure such as Eucalyptus, Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, Amazon Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2), and VMware ESX, to name a few. Enterprises are never locked into a specific infrastructure provider or platform. For more information, visit http://wso2.com/cloud/stratos .
