To really take advantage of cloud, software must be optimized to run in the cloud.

Join WSO2's award-winning CTO, Paul Fremantle, for this two part webinar which initially explores what it means to be "Cloud Native" and looks at a real open source project that has built a complete Cloud Native platform. Cloud is not just a better way to run existing software, there are core enhancements that need to be made to software to enable it to run really effectively in a cloud environment. Often the first thought is about massive scalability, but actually there are other key enablers: multi-tenancy, metering, dynamic distribution, self-service and incremental deployment and testability.

Paul FremantleThe first half of the webinar explores these enablers and looks at how an Open Source project (Carbon) built on Apache technology was re-built to be cloud native. The webinar will cover not just the concepts but dive into the practical issues in making a cloud native system and also explore which Apache technologies can help along the way.

In the second half, we will discuss how to make Tomcat a native cloud runtime - one that is optimized to run "in" the cloud rather than just "on top" of the cloud. We will look at what is important for any runtime that wants to truly be cloud native: multi-tenancy, self-service, elasticity, metering and billing, dynamic discovery and side-by-side versioning. Then we will explore how to make Tomcat work in this way. Based on experiences making Tomcat run in a cloud environment as part of Stratos, an Open Source project based on Tomcat and OSGi, we will look at the real issues, solutions, as well as exploring future work in this area.
