  • Session Number:  SI3


Open source technology is a key enabler for hosters worldwide. But, when does it make sense to move to a commercially supported open source solution? There are many factors to consider, including how to get the best performance and efficiency at the lowest TCO, how to leverage intergrated solutions, how to keep data best protected against outside threats, and the benefits of formal technical support.

In this session, we’ll take a close look at the real costs of open source solutions for today’s hosters, and will feature real-world case studies with users telling their stories about getting more value out of commercially supported open source solutions.
