WSO2 VP of Technology Evangelism to Present New York Workshop on Building a Private or Hybrid PaaS with WSO2 Stratos 2.0

Half-day technical workshop will demonstrate how enterprises can take advantage of support for multiple cloud models in WSO2 Stratos 2.0 to build their own PaaS

Palo Alto, CA – September 25, 2013 – The benefits of cloud architecture and cloud services have become increasingly important for enterprises. However, legal or organizational issues often prevent them from using a pure public platform as a service (PaaS). The alternative for these organizations is to implement either a private or hybrid PaaS. In a half-day hands-on workshop for IT professionals, WSO2 VP of Technology Evangelism Chris Haddad will show how companies and government agencies can optimize PaaS implementations using WSO2 Stratos 2.0.

The “Building a Private or Hybrid PaaS with Stratos 2.0” workshop will be held on Tuesday, October 8, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., in New York. For more information, visit:

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.

Chris will begin with a review 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. He will then examine how WSO2 Stratos can be installed, configured and used to enable a multi-tenant PaaS. Additionally, Chris 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 OpenStack, VMware and Amazon.
  • 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.
