The Chicken or the Egg? Cloud, Open Source and the Theory of Evolution - Jeff Borek, IBM & Andrew Hately, IBM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The power of open source communities has enabled rapid innovation, and developers are creating a new generation of Cloud Native applications built on open source platforms – using a mix of Cloud Foundry, OpenStack, Docker, and Linux as base technologies. We'll cover the evolution of the open source communities that are enabling the industry to build an Open Cloud and pursue  Software-Defined everything. This includes an overview of the recently launched Open Container Initiative and Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
We will also include the lessons our customers have learned as we work with them on building next-generation cloud-based applications on top of a continuously integrated, continuously delivered DevOps pipeline. Through real-world examples we will showcase the value of building on an open source, open technology foundation. Time permitting, this session will include a moderated debate on which came first? The chicken, the egg, open source or the Cloud.
