Building out a private Platform-as-a-Service is becoming increasingly important to organizations. Many organizations see the benefits of cloud architecture and cloud services, but they have legal or organizational issues that mean they cannot utilize a pure public PaaS.

Stratos is a Platform-as-a-Service foundation product that enables organizations to build their own PaaS: whether it is within the datacentre, or in an existing cloud environment such as Amazon or Rackspace, or in any combination of the two. Stratos layers on top of existing Infrastructure Clouds such as OpenStack, vmWare vSphere, Amazon or Rackspace and provides a more developer focused experience. Stratos 2.0 is a major update that now supports polyglot environments including PHP, MySQL, and can be extended to support multiple models.

This workshop, organized jointly with WSO2 partners SUSE and Yenlo, will take a technical, hands-on approach to show how Stratos can be installed, configured and used to provide a multi-tenant PaaS. Using demos on Amazon and local systems we will demonstrate the benefits of Stratos and PaaS in a private, hybrid or public cloud environment.

The workshop will cover a number of areas including:

  • Multi-tenancy and MT models
  • Elastic Load Balancing
  • IaaS configuration and working across heterogeneous IaaSes including OpenStack, vmWare and Amazon
  • Plugging in different runtimes and the Cartridge model
  • How development and App Factory fit into the Stratos model
  • The workshop is aimed at cloud architects and developers interested in PaaS
