WSO2 to Present Technical Webinar on Using Cloud-Enabled WSO2 Application Server for Business Scalability

WSO2 Webinar on August 2, Examines How to Build Cloud-enabled Web Applications and Services Using the WSO2 Application Server and WSO2 Developer Studio Palo Alto, CA – July 24, 2012 – An elastic cloud infrastructure allows businesses to rapidly deploy applications while minimizing costs. However, the traditional application servers deployed in most organizations do not meet the requirements necessary for them to move to the cloud. What enterprises need instead are application servers that support a wide range of deployment options, including installation on public and private clouds in addition to standalone uses. To facilitate this effort, WSO2 will present a free webinar on how developers can optimize their business scalability with the cloud-enabled WSO2 Application Server. The one-hour technical session, “WSO2 Intro Webinar - Scale your Business with the Cloud-Enabled WSO2 Application Server," is being held twice on Thursday, August 2: 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.

Additionally, the webinar will cover key features of the WSO2 Application Server, including:
  • Multi-tenancy support
