WS02 Launch New Open Source Cloud Platform
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 lock-in.”
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.
