Stratos and App Factory

Session Type Tutorial

Duration 45 minutes

Session Description

Platform as a Service (PaaS) is evolving rapidly. Stratos is an Open Source PaaS foundation that allows developers, organizations or cloud providers to create and manage a PaaS: either in private, public or hybrid clouds. App Factory is an Open Source development management cloud that adds continuous integration and application lifecycle management to Stratos. Either together or individually these are powerful Open Source projects than enable much more agile development.

In this session Paul will combine demonstration with hands on information to explain how to use Stratos and App Factory to create a development and runtime PaaS. The session will cover many aspects of the projects including support for multi-tenancy, elasticity, polyglot language support via "cartridges", and lightweight containers using Linux Containers (LXC).
