  • 1. The Red Hat Model Jeremy Brown - Head of Middleware UK&I, Red Hat @tenfourty jeremy@redhat.com 0
  • 2. What links all of these technologies? Android Facebook Amazon WS Hadoop Linux OpenStack All based on Open Source, the engine of innovation
  • 3. Lets talk about some principles for selecting software Let's call them Jeremy's golden rules for buying ;-) 1.  Software for your enterprise needs to be proven and ready for production 2.  Everything you run in production should have long term enterprise grade support 3.  Your cost of acquisition for software should be minimal (license plus training etc.) and the ongoing cost should be predictable 4.  Your TCO calculations should include the Cost of Exit and should be factored in during the selection process 5.  Your exposure to Vendor lock-in should be minimised and you should be able to walk away and keep the bits 6.  You shouldn't pay for upgrades!
  • 4. And some bonus rules for Open Source Though you might apply them to proprietary software too 1.  What is the size and adoption of the community behind this solution? Is it still growing? 2.  How open is the community? Does the license allow the community to fork the code?
  • 5. Red Hat's Model: Community Powered Innovation Does it meet Jeremy's rules?
  • 6. Many variations vendors take on open source Some enable optimizations for their hardware Some use open-core to upsell proprietary add-ons Some invest in focused areas Some contribute little and soley ship and support
  • 7. AND SOME... GO ALL IN
  • 8. JBoss Community & JBoss Enterprise Targeting Different Users & Use Cases
  • 9. Is Open Source a Business Model? No But it is the best DEVELOPMENT model on the planet Enables collaboration Gives users flexibility to consume on their terms Red Hat's subscription model is our business Model.
  • 10. What do these have in common? Linux OpenStack Hadoop Rails MongoDB Git Cassandra
  • 11. What do these have in common? They are all open source They are all examples of next-generation IT solutions They were started by users and developers, not companies
  • 12. Cloud without open source software? No Amazon No Rackspace No Google No Yahoo! No Salesforce.com No LinkedIn No Pandora No Twitter No Facebook
