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.

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
