WSO2 webinar on August 8, explores how to configure a load balance between multiple service domains with multiple clusters using the WSO2 Elastic Load Balancer
PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 1 — An enterprise platform-as-a-service (PaaS) allows businesses to support multi-tenancy, scaling up to thousands of tenants or more. However, organizations must deploy tenant partitioning on different clusters to effectively scale up to any number of tenants. To facilitate this effort, WSO2 will present a free webinar on how developers can configure a load balance between multiple service domains with multiple clusters with the forthcoming WSO2 Elastic Load Balancer (currently in beta).
The one-hour technical session, "WSO2 Product Release Webinar – Introduction to the WSO2 Elastic Load Balancer," is being held twice on Wednesday, August 8: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT for the Americas and 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. GMT for Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Multi-tenancy with the WSO2 Elastic Load Balancer
The webinar will introduce the WSO2 Elastic Load Balancer and examine its core capabilities, explaining how it can help organizations support their multi-tenancy needs. The session then will discuss how the WSO2 Elastic Load Balancer's non-blocking connection architecture enables pure streaming and on-demand processing of messages. Additionally, the webinar will cover key features of the WSO2 Elastic Load Balancer, including:
· Tenant-aware load balancing
· Private jet mode for tenants
· Infrastructure independent elasticity
· WSO2 Stratos and customer deployment use cases
The webinar will be presented by Chintana Wilamuna, WSO2 associate technical lead on the WSO2 development technologies team, who focuses on infrastructure development. Chintana is an Apache Stonehenge committer, who specializes in cloud computing, distributed and parallel computing, high scalable architectures, programming languages, and functional programming. Additionally, he started the WSO2 Web Services Frameworks for Ruby and Perl.

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.
