WSO2 Enters Open-Source Cloud-Based Middleware Market


June 3, 2010

WSO2 has announced WSO2 Stratos, its open-source middleware platform for cloud-based enterprise applications. According to the company, Stratos automates the provisioning of enterprise servers, including the portal, enterprise service bus (ESB), and application servers. As reported on ZDNet, the platform installs onto any existing cloud infrastructure, including Eucalyptus, Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, Amazon Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2), and VMware ESX.


"The announcement marks WSO2's entry into the emerging market for enterprise PaaS, as well as enabling hybrid computing models. Using Stratos, applications can be created or migrated on-premise, to a private cloud, or to the public cloud for potentially unprecedented deployment flexibility.

"The on-demand or on-premises Stratos platform fosters building and deploying applications and services specifically for platform as a service (PaaS)-type deployments. Stratos goes beyond plain vanilla PaaS, however, by automating provisioning of enterprise servers, including the portal, enterprise service bus (ESB), and application servers.
