Stratos Cloud Native PaaS Reloaded

WSO2 Stratos 2.0 reloads the definition of Cloud Native PaaS.   With Stratos 2.0, IT teams can:

  1. Move all their applications to the Cloud by plugging non-Cloud-aware servers and frameworks onto a PaaS Cloud-enablement framework. The fully extensible cartridge model allows new services, languages and frameworks, and runtime containers to be plugged in to the PaaS framework.
  2. Achieve Cloud scale for PHP applications, MySQL databases, and Tomcat hosted web applications.
  3. Deliver a single PaaS deployment over multiple IaaS environment (hybrid cloud).  WSO2 Stratos supports popular IaaS providers (vmWare, EC2, OpenStack, CloudStack, Rackspace, Eucalyptus) via the Apache jclouds project and Puppet based deployers.
  4. Improve TCO by lowering and optimizing run-time cost by moving applications to VM-based IaaS or choosing a lightweight Linux Container (LXC) deployment model that optimizes resource consumption and minimizes application infrastructure footprint.

 

Additionally,  the Stratos bits have been officially accepted as an Apache incubator project.
