OSGi Community Event 2014
Platform as a service (PaaS) provides a ready to use development or deployment environment and lets a developer quickly start coding instead of wasting time for setup and configuration. The PaaS manages the underlying O/S, provides database installations, language runtimes and application frameworks almost instantly. The developer can immediately focus on the data model and application logic, and therefore deliver a solution to the market in less time.
This talks gives an introduction to our open PaaS+ Cloud Platform for modular OSGi applications based on OpenShift . PaaS+ is a modular and scalable Java PaaS that features a modular build and deployment mechanism and helps to speed up application development while also making it more robust. We will show how PaaS+ supports OSGi application developers in the complete application lifecycle from development to production to achieve a faster time to market. Because the PaaS environment used in development, testing and production is the same, there is less overhead or problems staging the application from development to QA to productive deployment. The platform comes with a build in Apache Karaf server runtime enhanced by OSGi enabled base services such as Authentication, Rules Engine, Business Process Engine, Polyglot Persistence, Search and Indexing and an integrated OBR. These services are available through a consistent API and are orchestrated by the integrated OSGi framework.
The OSGi PaaS+ platform is based on research results from the TRESOR - Trusted Ecosystem for Standardized and Open cloud-based Resources – project to provide an open ecosystem for cloud applications for the health care sector . TRESOR is part of the Trusted Cloud initiative , funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.
