WSO2 and SUSE Present Technical Webinar on Delivering a Service-Oriented Data Center with IaaS and PaaS

Webinar on July 31, will examine best practices for optimizing the automation and scalability of a SUSE Cloud private IaaS using a WSO2 Stratos private PaaS

Palo Alto, CA – July 24, 2013 – Increasingly, enterprises are adopting private infrastructure as a service (IaaS) clouds to take advantage of the scalability and flexibility inherent in cloud environments while avoiding the security and latency issues associated with publicly hosted settings. As a result, organizations are also reevaluating how to optimize their future application delivery models. To help facilitate this effort, WSO2 and SUSE will jointly present a webinar on how IT professionals can efficiently address modern enterprise challenges and changing business demands using SUSE Cloud, the first enterprise OpenStack distribution, and WSO2 Stratos, the most complete open platform as a service (PaaS).

The one-hour technical session, “SUSE Cloud and WSO2 Stratos - Bridging OpenStack and PaaS to Deliver the Service-Oriented Data Center,” is being held twice on Wednesday, July 31: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT for the Americas and 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. GMT for Europe and Asia-Pacific.

The webinar then will discuss how WSO2 Stratos can leverage the automation and scalability of SUSE Cloud to deliver secure, standardized development environments that enable migration to an agile, service-oriented delivery model.
