Joint Webinar with Eucalyptus - Building a Cloud Application Platform - Wednesday, July 18, 2012

A Cloud application platform environment will enhance development team agility, lower security risk, streamline application management, and raise server efficiency. While Cloud application teams are familiar with using traditional virtual server tenancy to isolate applications, they realize at scale, virtual server tenancy environments quickly experience overcast cloud conditions. Cloud machine instance proliferation increases security risk, management burden, and operational expense. A Java container multi-tenant environment will provide greater Cloud scale while decreasing server count and lowering associated risk, burden, and expense.

Development and operation teams may have reservations about how to build a scalable, automated, multi-tenant environment enforcing security isolation, pooling database and user resources, and rapidly provision application environments. In this webinar, Chris Haddad and Paul Weiss will describe:

  • The cloud architecture components underpinning Cloud Native WSO2 Stratos and Eucalyptus Cloud.
  • How operation teams specify define resource sharing, partition tenants, and monitor service performance.
  • How to establish a run-time feedback loop between application and infrastructure.
  • Why Java container multi-tenancy increases tenant density and decreases cloud environment count.
