PALO ALTO, Calif., July 11 — A cloud application platform environment can enhance development team agility, lower security risk, streamline application management, and raise server efficiency. However, cloud application teams are discovering that, at scale, traditional virtual server tenancy environments create a proliferation of cloud machine instances, which increase the security risk, management burden, and operational expense. To help IT professionals adopt best practices and avoid these risks, WSO2 and Eucalyptus Systems will conduct a joint webinar, "Building a Cloud Application Platform."
The webinar will be presented jointly by Chris Haddad, WSO2 vice president of technology evangelism, and Paul Weiss, Eucalyptus Systems senior cloud engineer. The session is being held twice on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Pacific and 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. GMT for Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Together Chris and Paul will examine how organizations can develop a scalable, automated, multi-tenant environment that enforces security isolation, pools database and user resources, and rapidly provisions application environments. The session also will:
· Examine the cloud architecture components underpinning the cloud-native WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform and Eucalyptus Cloud platform for on-premise infrastructure as a service (IaaS) clouds.
· Explain how operation teams can specify and define resource sharing, partition tenants, and monitor service performance.
· Review how to establish a run-time feedback loop between an application and infrastructure.
· Discuss why Java container multi-tenancy increases tenant density and decreases cloud environment count.
Chris Haddad, WSO2 vice president of technology evangelism, works closely with developers, architects, and C-level executives to increase WSO2 technology adoption, improve the middleware platform, and maximize customer value. He has been advising Fortune 500 companies and charting a vision toward "Cloud 2020," both in his current role and as a former research vice president at the Burton Group and Gartner.
