VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., April 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Open source software and community advocate, OpenMetal, is increasing its commitment to open source, building upon an Open Infrastructure Foundation (OIF) membership.
OpenMetal believes it’s critical to build in monetary and operational support while delivering benefits such as cost transparency, flexibility, and technology freedom. Now our open source commitment is increasing with the Open Infrastructure Foundation. "We believe in the Open Infrastructure Foundation because the mission is not to monetize their projects by crippling the open source version," Todd Robinson, OpenMetal President continues, "but to provide their full powered projects to the world as is."
Open Infrastructure Foundation’s (OIF) goal is to build an open infrastructure for the next decade by solving hard infrastructure problems with larger markets. There are new demands being placed on infrastructure that are being driven by modern use cases such as: containers, AI, machine learning, 5G, NFV, and edge computing. OIF is building a community to write open-source software that addresses these infrastructure markets. The Foundation wants to ensure that the solutions to these demands are developed in the open, using the same transparent and proven approach to open source.
"Foundation members like OpenMetal play a vital role in making community-driven software development work," said Mark Collier, COO of the Open Infrastructure Foundation. "The engagement and active participation of hosted private cloud providers is critical in bringing the voice of bare metal providers into the development roadmap. The support of OpenMetal as a member is a powerful confirmation of the vision and direction of our community, and we’re looking forward to their participation in building the next 10 years of infrastructure software."
As a Silver Member, OpenMetal will be an exhibitor at the OpenInfra Summit in Berlin June 7-9, 2022. Our dedicated team of engineers will be at the event to meet with attendees and offer a live demonstration of how easily accessible we’ve made On-Demand Private Clouds for customers to deploy within 45 seconds.
