Attention enterprise: beware of quasi-open source

Apr 16, 2014, 12:00 (0 Talkback[s])

The history of Red Hat and the #RHSummit, the future of open source technologies and a caveat for Enterprise consumers were discussed in depth over the interview. Cormier’s perspective, in light of his near 13 years with Red Hat, is one that has seen the inception and development of the entire open source community and movement. The conversation kicked off with his take on the atmosphere inside the Moscone Center.

"I think the reason [this year] is so special is the vibe,” Cormier began. “This is really the first summit where we are seeing that Linux has been the driver of the innovation.” He continued, “On the other hand, there is all this excitement around the open source technologies that are surrounding Linux. There’s a lot of talk about Platform as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service, Cloud, Containers. It’s all driven by Linux but it’s all expanding of where open source is really going within the infrastructure. When [Red Hat] first started, we used to have this vision of the entire infrastructure being open source. We’re here. Think about that.”
