WSO2 Announces Beta Availability of WSO2 App Cloud and WSO2 API Cloud Summer 2014 Releases

Cloud computing increasingly is the preferred platform for connected businesses seeking to develop and host applications, and make APIs available to their employees, customers and partners. WSO2 addresses this demand with two public platform as a service (PaaS) offerings, WSO2 App Cloud and WSO2 API Cloud. Beta versions of the Summer 2014 releases are now available for developers to evaluate. The announcement is being made in conjunction with WSO2Con Europe 2014, which runs June 16-18, 2014 in Barcelona, Spain.

WSO2 App Cloud and WSO2 API Cloud combine robust, proven application life-cycle and API management functionality with the agility and ease of instant, self-provisioning. Registration simply requires an email address, and both services are readily available to use as a service from the WSO2 website. Throughout the beta period, both public PaaS offerings will be available at no cost. Service pricing will be announced when the Summer 2014 releases go into full production.

“WSO2 technology has long been used by some of the largest enterprises for API management and application development and hosting,” said Dmitry Sotnikov, WSO2 vice president – cloud. “With the Summer 2014 beta releases of WSO2 API Cloud and WSO2 App Cloud, we are democratizing the technology and making it available to individual developers and companies of any size.”

WSO2 App Cloud

WSO2 App Cloud is an application PaaS (aPaaS) designed to reduce costs and accelerate application development and delivery with integrated application life-cycle management and DevOps tools.

The Summer 2014 release is based on the 100% open source WSO2 App Factory 2.0, which launched today. It enables continuous cloud delivery through a shared, self-service, and elastic enterprise DevOps platform that empowers teams to collaboratively create, develop and deploy enterprise applications into cloud environments—without the delay of server provisioning. Robust governance ensures compliance with IT, corporate and government policies. At the same time, self-service capabilities and automation dramatically accelerate development and improve productivity.

WSO2 API Cloud

WSO2 API Cloud is based on the award-winning WSO2 API Manager 1.7. WSO2 API Manager is the first 100% open source API management product to combine easy, managed API access with full API governance and analysis. It lets organizations expose business capabilities as managed APIs and provides off-the-shelf potential for advertising and selling business APIs.

WSO2 API Cloud offers an API Store that lets IT organizations set up their own Apple or Google Marketplace-like store where developers can easily subscribe to and consume APIs. Meanwhile it provides API publishers with complete API lifecycle governance—from creating to publishing, deprecating and retiring APIs—as well as analytics and metrics to support decision-making and enforce service-level agreement (SLA) policies.

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacenter.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
