WSO2 CTO to Present London Workshop Providing Hands-on Lessons on How to Build a Private or Hybrid PaaS with WSO2 Stratos 2.0

One-day technical workshop on May 9, will explore how IT professionals can optimize PaaS implementations using the updated WSO2 Stratos 2.0 PaaS foundation Palo Alto, CA – April 30, 2013 – Many enterprises recognize the benefits of cloud architecture and cloud services, but legal or organizational issues mean that they cannot utilize a pure public platform-as-a-service (PaaS). The alternative for these companies and governmental agencies is to implement either a private or hybrid PaaS. In a one-day hands-on workshop for cloud architects and developers, WSO2 Co-founder and CTO Paul Fremantle will explore how enterprises can build their own PaaS using the forthcoming WSO2 Stratos 2.0 open source PaaS foundation, currently in beta. The “Building a Private or Hybrid PaaS with Stratos 2.0” workshop will be held on Thursday, May 9, from 12:00 – 5:00 p.m., at IET London: Savoy Place in London, UK. Building a Private or Hybrid PaaS with WSO2 Stratos 2.0 The hands-on technical workshop will examine how cloud architects and developers can use WSO2 Stratos 2.0 to build a PaaS that runs within a datacenter, in an existing cloud environment such as Amazon or Rackspace, or in any combination of the two. Paul will begin with an overview of WSO2 Stratos 2.0, a major update that now supports polyglot environments, such as PHP and MySQL, and can be extended to support multiple cloud models. He will then examine how WSO2 Stratos can be installed, configured and used to enable a multi-tenant PaaS. Additionally, Paul will use demonstrations on the Amazon Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2) and local systems to highlight the benefits of WSO2 Stratos and PaaS in a private, hybrid or public cloud environment. Workshop session topics will include:
  • A review of multi-tenancy and multi-tenant models.
  • An overview of elastic load balancing.
  • Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) configuration and how to work across heterogeneous IaaS environments, including OpenStack, VMware vSphere, Amazon EC2, and Rackspace.
  • How to plugin different runtimes using the WSO2 Stratos 2.0 cartridge model.
  • How the new WSO2 App Factory enterprise DevOps platform fits into the WSO2 Stratos model.
