About WSO2 Carbon

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) and cloud environment. Built on the OSGi specification, WSO2 Carbon lets developers easily deploy and customize any of its WSO2 Carbon-based middleware products, and the 175-plus components on which they are comprised, providing greater flexibility and agility to meet changing enterprise demands.

The WSO2 Carbon core framework provides all WSO2 middleware products with a consistent set of enterprise-class management, security, clustering, logging, statistics, tracing, and other capabilities. The cloud-enabled WSO2 Carbon core lets IT professionals write an application once and then simply deploy it on the same middleware on-premise, on a PaaS, or in a hybrid environment. Additionally, the inherent multi-tenancy allows organizations to manage isolation between departments, partners or simply between separate development groups—whether deploying software as a service (SaaS) or running it directly on servers.

The award-winning 100% open source WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform is released under the Apache License 2.0 and does not carry any licensing fees.
