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.”
