Key points of the webinar:

  • Open Source as collaborative effort to drive innovation
  • Evolution from free to software as a service (SaaS)
  • Community principle, product turnover, support touch
  • Disadvantages (long-term cost, security, orphan software)
  • Popular SDS and backup offers (CEPH, RCLONE, etc.)

It’s becoming harder to find lenient licensing conditions when it comes to infrastructure storage solutions. Enterprise vendors keep raising the prices and making the terms more complex. Open source emerged as a response to that. Watch this webinar to learn about open-source storage, its history, pros and cons, support, and most popular offerings.
