Carbon and Stratos: understanding cloud-enabled modular middleware

WSO2 Carbon and Stratos provides a complete middleware platform for Enterprise computing: from on-premise to a full cloud-enabled runtime. In this session we will spend the morning looking at the Carbon platform - including leading ESB, AppServer, Governance Registry and more. In the afternoon we will look at the way this runtime is also available in a multi-tenant scalable, elastic architecture. This session will cover SOA and Cloud middleware, PaaS as well as digging deep into Cloud concepts.

This hands-on workshop provides a real opportunity to understand Carbon, OSGi middleware, PaaS, Stratos, and get going with a Cloud Platform. StratosLive is a complete running platform in the cloud, and participants will be encouraged to set up a tenant using their laptops during the workshop, and will understand how to install and use Stratos in a Private PaaS environment.

Presented by:

Jonathan Marsh, VP Business Development & Product Design, WSO2

Jonathan has contributed to and promoted open source solutions that ease the adoption and accelerate the benefits of SOA, from leading the development of the WSO2 Mashup Server to evangelizing the use of Open Source products. Prior to joining WSO2, Jonathan spent ten years at Microsoft where he helped develop, standardize and promote the core XML and Web Services standards which form the foundation of modern Service Oriented Architectures. Jonathan was an active member in W3C and WS-I Working Groups and OASIS Technical Committees, including serving as chair of the W3C Web Services Description Working Group and editor of many specs.

Chris Haddad, VP Technology Evangelism WSO2
