It's been just over a year since Oracle first released an OpenStack version tailored for its namesake Linux distribution, and on Tuesday it followed up with a key update reworked specifically for today's containerized world.
Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux Release 2 is the first commercially available OpenStack implementation that's packaged entirely as Docker instances, Oracle said, meaning that enterprises don't need to install components individually.
Apcera’s platform is mostly written in Go language. We are strong proponents of open source and have open sourced some of our products and key components. One notable open source product from Apcera is NATS (http://www.nats.io), our high-performance, simple and scalable cloud native message bus that powers some of the largest cloud platforms in production today. Not only is the product completely open source, but we also open sourced the website and documentation itself. Another notable open source product from Apcera is Kurma (https://github.com/apcera/kurma/), a next generation execution environment for a containerized host. Kurma is built on the notion that everything is a container. It is an operating system that allows containers to be managed and orchestrated by other processes.

Much of Netflix’s success can be attributed to the open source environment that it has created for its products and services. Since Netflix began to realize the benefits of making its software available through open source, the company has released more than 50 projects for input on its Github page. And due to its open source preference, usage and success in code software development, Netflix has assisted in legitimizing open source as a powerful tool for many organizations.
Open source practices have been revolutionizing the way we build software for a while now. Besides providing a wealth of low-cost and well-built components, open source software has been the catalyst behind some of the most exciting new technology developments of our time: cloud computing, software-defined networking, online software delivery and more. Open source practices are also beginning to impact hardware engineering via initiatives such as the maker movement, 3D printing and low-cost platforms such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
France’s citizens are in favour of their public administrations’ use of free and open source software.

And on time following the new three month release cycle! The previous release, ownCloud Server 8.1, was all about stability, performance and security.
