WS02 Launch New Open Source Cloud Platform
WSO2 announce new application platform-as-a-service, WSO2 Stratos.
WSO2 have announced the launch of Wso2 Stratos, labelled
by the organisation as “the first 100% open source cloud platform
for enterprise applications.”
WSO2 Stratos is a fully hosted application platform-as-a-service
(PaaS,) built on top of WSO2 Carbon. With WS02, applications and
services can be built and deployed to either a private or a public
cloud. WSO2 Stratos provides a Web-based management portal where
severs can be configured, managed and governed.
“At a time when IT developers can create a new application in
one month, taking months to provision and deploy servers and
systems no longer makes strategic or economic sense,” said Dr.
Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder and CEO. “WSO2 Stratos provides a
complete middleware platform for delivering robust applications on
private clouds, as well as migrating between and integrating with
public clouds and on-premise systems—and there’s never cloud
WSO2 Stratos is currently available as an early adopter release
for private clouds, as a demonstration version on public clouds,
and as an early release of the downloadable open source software.
Various support packages are also available from WSO2, including a
CloudStart SM Program, where an engineering team spend a week
deploying WSO2 Stratos on either Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud or the
customer’s existing cloud infrastructure.
