WSO2 Identity Server Builds on WSO2 Carbon Platform
WSO2 Identity Server is built on the same modular, fully componentized
OSGi-compliant code base as the award-winning WSO2 Carbon enterprise
middleware platform. Like all WSO2 middleware products, it is
inherently cloud-enabled and uses proven core framework components that
provide a consistent set of enterprise-class management, security,
clustering, logging, statistics, tracing, and other capabilities.
Additionally, it offers a graphical management console, which is
integrated with other WSO2 middleware products, for configuration,
management and monitoring. The componentized architecture gives
enterprises unprecedented flexibility to customize WSO2 Identity Server
by adding WSO2 Carbon middleware products or the 175-plus components on
which they are based.
