Abstract: When it’s free/libre/gratis, who gets to keep the money? Open source software is now the norm, not a niche. Its broad adoption as a defacto standard has exposed enormous unexploited inefficiencies. The breadth of OpenStack adoption will create new forms of monetization, even if you don’t know what they are. Giving up on finding “the next Red Hat” or the “next Cloudera” might mean you’re looking in the rear view mirror.

“A growing number of organizations view OpenStack as the leading platform for private, public and hybrid cloud environments,” said Thomas Cornely, Chief Product Officer of Nexenta, “Nexenta continues to develop Software Defined Storage solutions that integrate with this open source alternative, and end users choose Nexenta and OpenStack to avoid vendor lock-in, deliver flexible, modular and lower cost benefits for their infrastructures.”

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.
Whenever a new technology hits the high points of hype, everyone starts talking about it like it will solve all their business problems. Blockchain is one of those technologies.
