What is Atlas?
Atlas helps you launch your satellite application quickly and painlessly. It build on top of cyclops and and the business logic layer to create a basic satellite application.
What about SSO (Single Sign On)?
Atlas does not provide any SSO functionality. It is up to the Satellite Application to handle the SSO flow. This is the case because each Satellite Application may have different requirements and thus choose to implement it’s session and user management slightly different.
Where did the name come from?
Atlas is named after the NASA Atlas rocket. The Atlas rocket was a medium launch vehicle (MLV) that was used through out the "space race" to carry satellites, equipment, and astronauts to space. Given that the Atlas library helps "launch" satellite applications faster it seemed appropriate.
