Welcome to the WSO2 Solution Architecture Blog!

It is a privileged part of my job to work closely with companies of all sizes who are using the WSO2 platform as part of their overall Enterprise Architecture. I work with the team of architects here at WSO2 who collaborate, guide and learn from our interactions with other architects from some of the best companies in the business.

One of the things that we’ve really learnt is that architects love to have a set of modular components available to hand. And we are constantly learning from engagements and customers how the building blocks from Carbon and Stratos can be used to create amazing solutions. Whether its small startups, midsized companies or Fortune 500 enterprises, architects are finding value in lean open source middleware.

Solution architecture issues range widely:

  • Should I build a shared-nothing model?
  • Do I need to separate my data services layer from my integration layer?
  • What is the value of policy-based entitlement?
  • What cloud architectures are being adopted for large scale high-volume systems?

Solution Architecture is one of the areas where our customers are most keen to get best practice. Hence welcome to this new blog. We aim to ask – and answer – these sort of questions and more.  And we look forward to your contributions: whether its a comment, a trackback, a link to your thoughts or even a guest blog.
