New WSO2 White Paper Examines How Enterprise IT Organizations Can Reduce Costs Up to 88% by Adopting a Cloud-Native Multi-Tenant Deployment Topology

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — As organizations seek to balance business innovation with the bottom line, IT teams need to optimize both their integration total cost of ownership (TCO) and platform return on investment (ROI). A new WSO2 white paper discusses how enterprise IT teams can reduce costs up to 88% by adopting a cloud-native multi-tenant deployment topology and offering middleware as a service based on the WSO2 platform.

Optimizing Infrastructure Cost and Agility with the WSO2 Platform

The white paper, “WSO2 Reduces Infrastructure Cost and Improves Agility,” was written by Chris Haddad, WSO2’s vice president of platform evangelism. It begins by explaining how WSO2's yearly product support subscription and pricing models directly correlate production spend to delivered business value.

The white paper next discusses how the WSO2 platform:     Is optimized for high performance and scalable clustering at a low server count     Creates a safe, multi-tenant environment to maximize resource sharing and lower overall cost, time and effort     Delivers advanced clustering, high-speed messaging, scalable monitoring, and centralized management required for enterprise-class deployments     Supports Apache Axis2 and Apache CXF Web services projects

The paper then explores how a team can achieve low integration TCO; shared container, high multi-tenant platform ROI; and highly efficient multi-tenant, shared container platform-as-a-service (PaaS) TCO. Additionally, it reviews effective business case drivers, including how to define goals and identify resources necessary to create and drive an infrastructure transformation roadmap. The paper concludes by discussing best practices for creative experimentation and innovation using the WSO2 platform.
