PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 21 — WSO2 today announced it will demonstrate how IT architects and developers can use open source middleware to build applications capable of running both on-premise and in the cloud at the Gartner Application Architecture Integration & Development Summit (AADI). The event is being held November 29 – December 1, 2011 at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nev.
WSO2, a Silver sponsor of the Gartner AADI Summit, will have service-oriented architecture (SOA) and open source technology experts in the Solution Showcase, who will share best practices for building applications that can seamlessly and smoothly migrate between local servers, public clouds, private clouds, and cloud hybrid environments.
WSO2 experts also will demonstrate examples of seamlessly integrated on-premise and cloud applications of its award-winning, 100 percent open source platforms: the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform and WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform. The latest versions of these platforms and the WSO2StratosLive platform-as-a-service (PaaS) were launched simultaneously earlier this month, ensuring enterprises have access to the latest WSO2 technology advances whether they are deployed on-premise or in the cloud.
Three WSO2 Platforms, One Code Base
WSO2 Carbon is the industry's first fully componentized middleware platform for creating, running and managing composite applications and Web services within an SOA. Built on the OSGi specification, WSO2 Carbon lets developers easily deploy and customize any of its WSO2 Carbon-based middleware products, and the 150-plus components on which they are comprised, providing greater flexibility and agility to meet changing enterprise demands.
WSO2 Stratos is the industry's first complete cloud middleware platform for rapidly building and deploying applications and services with full multi-tenancy and the elasticity, reliability and scalability to support high-volume cloud environments. WSO2 Stratos is built on top of and extends WSO2 Carbon with cloud-native functionality, and it powers the WSO2 StratosLive public PaaS hosted by WSO2. Because WSO2 Carbon, WSO2 Stratos and WSO2 StratosLive share the same code, applications and services can be migrated smoothly and safely on premise, to a private cloud, to the public cloud, or to a hybrid environment.

Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
