Demonstration: Build Seamlessly Integrated On Premise and Cloud Applications

WSO2 will use its booth in the EA Forum Solutions Showcase to demonstrate how the 100% open source WSO2 Carbon and WSO2 Stratos enable IT developers to build seamlessly integrated enterprise applications and services—whether they run on local servers, public clouds, private clouds, or hybrid environments.

The award-winning WSO2 Carbon is the industry’s first fully componentized middleware platform for creating, running, and managing composite applications and Web services within a service-oriented architecture (SOA). Built on the OSGi specification, WSO2 Carbon lets developers easily deploy and customize any of its WSO2 Carbon-based middleware products, providing greater flexibility and agility to meet changing enterprise demands.

WSO2 Stratos is the industry’s first complete cloud middleware platform for rapidly building and deploying applications and services. It provides IT professionals with a fully hosted application platform as a service (PaaS) featuring instant provisioning, elasticity, and the efficiency of multi-tenancy. Because WSO2 Stratos is built on top of and extends WSO2 Carbon, applications and services can be migrated smoothly and safely on premise, to a private cloud, to the public cloud, or to a hybrid environment.
