Leading Technology Research Center Uses WSO2 Governance Registry to Bring Integrity and Reliability to SaaS Platform

WSO2 announced today that the South-East European Research Centre (SEERC) has used the open source WSO2 Governance Registry as the basis for its CAST Registry & Repository. Residing at the center of the CAST cloud application platform, the CAST Registry & Repository serves to maintain integrity and reliability while the platform continuously expands through the addition of new components and entire software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings by third-party developers.

Case Study Highlights Value of OSGi

A new SEERC study from WSO2 describes how the organization has used the WSO2 Governance Registry as part of its CAST research project, which is focused on creating a cloud platform supporting the development and customization of SaaS applications by third parties. In addition to providing core governance capabilities within the cloud application platform developed by the CAST project, the WSO2 Governance Registry has facilitated the development of several customizations and extensions through its componentized, OSGi-compliant architecture.

“The component-based OSGi design of the WSO2 Governance Registry has made development easier, and the components are versatile enough for us to reuse,” said Dimitrios Kourtesis, a researcher in the Information & Knowledge Management research group of SEERC. “The same OSGI container for the WSO2 Governance Registry also runs our SLA monitoring engine. We’ve also used OSGi components to create a custom notification mechanism and logic for role-based access management.”

“As a leading center of applied research in Europe, SEERC recognized early on the critical role of governance in implementing an effective cloud platform for SaaS delivery,” said Paul Fremantle, WSO2 co-founder and CTO. “Like SEERC, we believe that there is a strong role to play in managing multi-tenant and multi-party SaaS. We are very excited by SEERC’s success in using our WSO2 Governance Registry in creating its innovative CAST Registry & Repository, and the success they are having in managing third-party SaaS development and deployment.”
