According to a recent press release, “Instaclustr, offering scalable open source technologies delivered as completely managed solutions, today announced the launch of its Open Source-as-a-Service platform. This comprehensive platform offers customers across industries — and from startups to the enterprise — fully hosted and securely managed Apache Cassandra, Apache Spark, Elasticsearch, Kibana, Lucene, and Zeppelin. Each is delivered to customers in its 100% open source form, with absolutely no vendor or technical lock-in. The platform arrives as the company continues to deliver top-line growth in excess of 100% YoY, and has reached milestones of 10 million node hours and 1 petabyte of data under management.”
The release goes on, “Instaclustr has always delivered managed open source solutions, operating an automated, proven management environment that customers trust to provide reliability at scale. Now, with the launch of its new platform, Instaclustr makes that commitment official by dedicating itself to deploying only 100% open source technologies. In an industry where, all too often, providers will deliver open source solutions repackaged into proprietary versions that promote vendor lock-in, Instaclustr is ensuring that every solution it provides will always consist of fully portable open source code.”
It continues, “In proprietary lock-in situations, businesses find themselves held prisoner to price increases, have no ability to run the solutions themselves or modify code to fit specific cases, and face slower resolution of bugs and other issues. In contrast, Instaclustr’s new platform puts organizations in control and helps to de-risk an investment in open source technologies. Customers are empowered to utilize and customize its managed open source solutions however is optimal, while also providing the support and expertise required for businesses to fully focus on building their applications.”
