The web was build using open source software like Linux, Apache, MySQL and the pervasive PHP, Python and Perl. Just as with the web, open source is one of the core foundations of cloud computing as early cloud pioneers used the freely available, freely-distributable model to power their web-scale deployments—achieving an unprecedented level of scale at a bare-bones cost that had never been seen in the history of computing. The first movers in cloud computing services found the open source software model most appealing, but to businesses today the attraction of open source is about the ability to develop a more flexible infrastructure and avoid vendor lock-in that often results from proprietary systems.
