  • 1. My 2 cents Paul Quickenden, Strategy Manager Gen-i @paulq @geni_ICT A provocative look at the Proprietary vs Open source debate in cloud computing
  • 2. Setting the scene
  • 3. There is considerable discussion within cloud circles about Opensource
  • 4. ..some (including me) predicting that proprietary software is in big trouble
  • 5. … OSS pundits are building platforms and attempting to build standards
  • 6. … and some downright vilification of some vendors
  • 7. Cloud ‘Developers’ are making choices based on their world view
  • 8. … seeing some of their partners start to go direct… Obviously, AT&T, Peer1, and Hosted Solutions weren't overjoyed about competing with their storage vendor, which is undoubtedly a major reason why EMC shut down Atmos Online.
  • 9. … hearing some of their peers being caught out by company failures or acquisitions
  • 10. While being bombarded with FUD…
  • 11. ..or bringing their own ‘religious’ beliefs
  • 12. Which are all valid concerns, but they tend to ignore customers and what they want
  • 13. ..customers have long since abandoned even the pretence of caring about the definitions…. Proprietary vs Open source
  • 14. … instead they are making decisions using the same trusted criteria they always have … Technology they know and trust … are trained in (and have built their careers around) … have already business cased (and put their heads on the block)
  • 15. … or taking the least risk approach… “ In the enterprise, Private cloud will Mature First, and it will be built on the technology already in the data centre”
  • 16. Why is there such a big divide? Proprietary Open Source You got open source on my proprietary cloud You got proprietary on my open source cloud
  • 17. Well… lets view this from an client adoption of innovation Point Of View
  • 18. Cloud computing is still early in the product lifecycle
  • 19. Which means there is lots to DO to get the majority clients over the line

    90% 16% 34% 34% 13.5% 2.5%
  • 20. And the key things to ‘DO’ from a client POV are mainly about service reliability
    • “ Availability and performance were tied at  #2 last year, and are there again this year.  
  • 21. So… how do you build in performance, availability and dependability into your product?
  • 22. … .you build your products using proprietary, interdependent architectures
    • This approach gives you control of the entire system…
    • And this control improves the reliability

    Good enough line
  • 23. And you keep at it until you get past the good enough line….

    Good enough line
  • 24. … and competition changes, in order to differentiate you need to provide more choice, customisation and speed. Good enough line
  • 25. And to deliver these you need modular, open architectures….or OSS October 27, 2010 ©Copyright Gen-i 2009
  • 26. Where are we seeing this?
  • 27. Strong growth of Opensource in commodity areas and ….
  • 28. … Funnily enough proprietary PaaS…which appears to deliver the speed, choice and customisation
  • 29. Conclusions…
    • In general, all big debates that the clouderati are having don’t mean much to clients
      • Cloud might be a new, but all the old rules apply (innovation adoption, profit, channel dynamics, human dimension, who wins and who looses)
    • The whole debate of proprietary and OS is just a question of timing… and customers dictate that not us.
      • Watch for when the ‘good enough’ line is crossed…
    • The customer outcome that PaaS & open source architectures provides are pretty much the same…
      • Flexibility, agility, customisation
    • If you are a developer you are going to have to place your bets, but pick a big player…
      • And expect to eventually compete with them at the high end
