WSO2 to Present Technical Webinar on Using Cloud-Enabled WSO2 Application Server for Business Scalability


Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) July 24, 2012

An elastic cloud infrastructure allows businesses to rapidly deploy applications while minimizing costs. However, the traditional application servers deployed in most organizations do not meet the requirements necessary for them to move to the cloud. What enterprises need instead are application servers that support a wide range of deployment options, including installation on public and private clouds in addition to standalone uses. To facilitate this effort, WSO2 will present a free webinar on how developers can optimize their business scalability with the cloud-enabled WSO2 Application Server.

The one-hour technical session, WSO2 Intro Webinar – Scale your Business with the Cloud-Enabled WSO2 Application Server,” is being held twice on Thursday, August 2: 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.

Scaling Your Business with the Cloud

The webinar will begin with an architectural overview of the WSO2 Application Server, which is part of the WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform that provides cloud-native features, such as self-provisioning, multi-tenancy, elasticity and metering. The session then will examine how to develop Web applications and Web services together with the WSO2 Developer Studio. Additionally, the webinar will cover key features of the WSO2 Application Server, including:

Avantica Technologies Nearshore Cloud App Engineering Services Deliver Agility and Dynamic Scalability

Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2012

Avantica Technologies, one of the largest Nearshore software engineering services companies in Latin America, announced today that its Cloud application development and testing service continues to deliver both agility and dynamic scalability to the companys North America start-up and Software 500 customers.

Mario Chaves, Chief Executive Officer of Avantica, explained: Avanticas software developers and QA engineers are highly skilled in distributed Agile. Weve applying those Agile skills toward rapid and productive integration with our customers internal engineering teams, helping the expanded team co-develop, test and implement customers cloud-based platforms.

Avantica, which recently nearly doubled its number of certified Scrum Masters, has over the past 18 years helped organizations release nearly 1,600 software products, large-scale Web and mobile applications. The companys reputation for quality software delivery to the cloud was built on the advantage of Latin Americas time-zone alignment with the U.S. Avanticas software engineering centers in Costa Rica and Peru, unlike India outsourcing, are geographically close to its customers, enabling the company to quickly help organizations get their apps productive in the cloud.

The Gartner research firm says that while the cloud will save organizations money, the primary benefit of adopting a cloud model should not be cost savings, but instead agility and dynamic scalability, which can improve speed to market. Gartner predicts that as the cloud market continues to evolve, organizations will be increasingly open to the idea of using public cloud resources. Service-level agreements and security precautions will mature and the impact of outages and downtime will be minimized. By 2013, Gartner estimates the cloud computing market will be at $ 150 billion. One example: Amazons Web Services unit, which provides business with an infrastructure Web services platform in the cloud, contributed $ 500 million in revenue alone in 2010.

Avanticas engineers are helping the companys customers develop cloud-based apps for social and enterprise support, and other requirements. The North America market for Nearshore software engineering services specialists has grown rapidly. The main benefits are access to aligned cultural compatibility; skilled, economical labor; and shorter travel time and time-zone alignment supporting Agile-based software development and QA engineering. For example, the flight from San Francisco, Calif. to to San Jose, Costa Ricas capital, is seven hours. That compares to the flight from San Francisco to Bangalore, India, 21 hours.

While cloud computing has existed for over a decade, consumers and businesses increasingly recognize that the cloud offers attractive solutions. With small and medium-sized businesses leading cloud adoption growth, interest by larger corporations is growing. Avantica Technologies undeniable strengths in Agile software engineering, Nearshore proximity to its North American customers, and cloud application engineering experience, will continue to help the Nearshore specialists customers realize improved speed to market.
