GigaOM Bunker Session Coming Up: On the Cloud and Open Source

by Ostatic Staff - Mar. 23, 2010

Does the enterprise know that FOSS (Free Open Source Software) is a big foundation of its next phase of computing and will it actively fuel the future of FOSS? Or will we slip back to business as normal and proprietary software? The rise of cloud computing and SaaS has been in no small part due to the availability of enabling platforms and applications in the open source domain - tools like Hadoop, Xen and Puppet to name a few.

In an intimate, upcoming Bunker Session event taking place in San Francisco, staffers from OStatic parent GigaOM will discuss the convergence of cloud computing and open source. The event is Wednesday, March 31st, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 pm., and speakers are seen below. It is invitation only but there are a few tickets left for interested parties who write to
