Taking control of your open source stack

Enterprise IT infrastructure teams have shifted away from proprietary software platforms to open source, leveraging the flexibility, functional breadth, and cost-effectiveness of community-driven packages.
At least, that's what everyone likes to think.
Today's tech leaders face the same battles as before, with the tyranny of choice, ecosystem lock-in, lack of skills, and spiraling costs at the top of C-level agendas.
"[The] friction around commercialization, the threat of hyperscale cloud providers or both is leading many to drift or at least consider drifting away from standard, accepted open source models.” - Stephen O’Grady, RedMonk
How do massive organizations plan, use, and maintain their open source infrastructure more effectively than yours? The answer is: They don't.

Episode 2: How to choose the right open source stack - August 9, 1:00 p.m. ET
Presenter: Rod Cope
There are many options and opinions for an enterprise team to consider when moving IT infrastructure to open source, and the perception that the only solutions are to buy into large ecosystems or build out homegrown, loosely-supported architectures.
Surprisingly, the most successful organizations deploy very similar open source stacks while meeting the unique needs of their businesses. Our open source architects identify the six most popular stacks today, how they let teams focus on their applications, and explain ways to deploy with long-term agility and cost-effectiveness in mind.
"Businesses shouldn't care too much about their infrastructure–that was the whole point of the cloud. They should go back to focusing on what they want to do, not how." – Rod Cope, CTO
You will learn how to decide which stack is right for your organization and walk through real examples and demonstrations of how they are used.
