WSO2, SUSE and Yenlo Will Jointly Present Nuremberg Workshop on Building a Private or Hybrid PaaS

Half-day workshop on October 8, will take a technical hands-on approach to examining how IT professionals can implement a multitenant PaaS using WSO2 Stratos 2.0

Palo Alto, CA – September 24, 2013 – Even as enterprises recognize the significant benefits of cloud architecture and cloud services, legal or organizational issues often prevent them from using 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. Together, WSO2, SUSE and Yenlo B.V. will conduct a half-day hands-on workshop for cloud architects and developers, which will explore how enterprises can build their own PaaS using WSO2 Stratos 2.0.

The “Building a Private or Hybrid PaaS with Stratos 2.0” workshop will be held on Tuesday, October 8, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., in Nuremberg, Germany.

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.

Workshop presenters 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. They will then examine how WSO2 Stratos can be installed, configured and used to enable a multi-tenant PaaS. Additionally, the presenters 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 SUSE Cloud and other OpenStack-based offerings, 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.
