- 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.
- Achieve Cloud scale for PHP applications, MySQL databases, and Tomcat hosted web applications.
- Deliver a single PaaS deployment over multiple IaaS environment (hybrid cloud).Â WSO2 Stratos supports popular IaaS providers (vmWare, EC2, OpenStack, CloudStack, Rackspace, Eucalyptus) via the Apache jclouds project and Puppet based deployers.
- 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.
