WSO2 CTO to Present Technical Session on Open Source PaaS at QCon San Francisco 2011

Session Will Use an Open Source Cloud Middleware Platform to Explore the Issues of Multi-Tenancy, Elasticity, and Metering in the Cloud Palo Alto, CA – November 8, 2011 – WSO2 today announced that WSO2 Co-founder and CTO Paul Fremantle will speak at QCon San Francisco 2011 in a session entitled “Stratos – an Open Source Cloud Platform.” The session is part of the event’s Cloud and NoSQL Solutions track on Wednesday, November 16, 2011. As a sponsor of the conference, WSO2 also will have a booth to demonstrate how its open source middleware enables enterprises to seamlessly deploy applications and Web services on-premise and in the cloud. QCon San Francisco 2011 is being held November 16–18, 2011 at the Westin San Francisco Market Street. Open Source Approach to PaaS More enterprises are looking to platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)—whether in a true public cloud or as an on-premise private cloud—to build a strong framework that lets developers go beyond just hosting an image in a cloud. This session will explore how the WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform enables the deployment of a full PaaS, whether on the public cloud or on a Eucalyptus, vmWare, OpenStack or Ubuntu private cloud. It also will examine how developers can quickly build out highly scalable applications, free from any lock-in. Additionally, the session will dig into the challenges of multi-tenancy, elasticity and metering, and show how to get started with running and managing WSO2 Stratos. Time: Wednesday, November 16, 2011, 4:50–5:50 p.m. Location: Concordia Presenter: Paul Fremantle is WSO2 co-founder and CTO, vice president of the Apache Software Foundation Synapse Project, and co-chair of the OASIS Web Services Reliable eXchange Technical Committee. Demonstration: Build Seamlessly Integrated On-Premise and Cloud Applications WSO2 will use its booth at QCon San Francisco 2011 to demonstrate how the 100% open source WSO2 Carbon, WSO2 Stratos and WSO2 StratosLive enable IT developers to build seamlessly integrated enterprise applications and services—whether they run on local servers, public clouds, private clouds, or hybrid cloud 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 an SOA. Built on the OSGi specification, WSO2 Carbon lets developers easily deploy and customize any of its WSO2 Carbon-based middleware products, and the 150-plus components on which they are comprised, providing greater flexibility and agility to meet changing enterprise demands. The award-winning WSO2 Stratos is the industry’s first complete cloud middleware platform for rapidly building and deploying applications and services with full multi-tenancy and the elasticity, reliability and scalability to support high-volume cloud environments. It is built on top of and extends WSO2 Carbon. WSO2 StratosLive is the public PaaS hosted by WSO2 and powered by the WSO2 Stratos software. Because WSO2 Carbon, WSO2 Stratos and WSO2 StratosLive share the same code, applications and services can be migrated smoothly and safely on premise, to a private cloud, to the public cloud, or to a hybrid environment.
