WSO2 Presents Technical Webinars on Emerging Enterprise Cloud Computing Models, From Global 2000 Companies to SMEs

Interactive Sessions Explore How to Use the WSO2 Stratos Cloud Middleware Platform and WSO2 StratosLive PaaS to Maximize Cloud Benefits and Remove Barriers to Adoption Palo Alto, CA – November 3, 2011 – Cloud computing provides enterprises great opportunities for enabling agility while reducing costs. However, there is no one-size-fits-all cloud deployment model for organizations. Global 2000 companies and governments more frequently choose to implement a private cloud or host their own platform-as-a-service (PaaS) in order to maximize control over their data and services. Meanwhile small to medium enterprises (SMEs) often turn to a public PaaS as a way to level the playing field in bringing software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions to market. In November, WSO2 will present two technical webinars to provide IT professionals with best practices for implementing these different cloud models. Creating a Private Cloud Middleware Platform or Public Cloud Service with WSO2 Stratos This webinar is targeted at organizations that are attempting to bring cloud computing benefits to their middleware platform environment. Together, WSO2 Co-founder and CTO Paul Fremantle and Vice President of Technology Evangelism Chris Haddad will demonstrate how the award-winning WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform can provide enterprise architects and IT developers an optimal foundation to:
  • Raise development and operational (DevOps) agility.
  • Synchronize enterprise service bus (ESB) investments with a PaaS strategy.
  • Apply governance and policies consistently across internal and external clouds.
  • Quickly deliver a proof of concept demonstrating internal PaaS benefits.
  • Build a PaaS supporting an ecosystem of teams, partners and projects.
The one-hour webinar is being held on Tuesday, November 8 from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT.

Together WSO2 Stratos Team Software Engineer Muhammed Shariq and Software Engineer Kathiravelu Pradeeban will explain how to deploy a Web application on the WSO2 StratosLive open source PaaS, provision a database and expose it using data services, and host the Web application as a SaaS solution. The one-hour webinar is being held twice on Wednesday, November 9: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT for the Americas and 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. GMT for Europe and Asia-Pacific.
