- Brocade buys StackStorm…OMGWTFBBQ? – Brocade buying StackStorm for their OpenStack Mistral project, last seen at 0% in the OpenStack User Survey – “Several companies used the StackStorm open-source software, including MasterCard, Netflix, SendGrid, and Target, but StackStorm had fewer than 10 paying customers for its enterprise tier, Powell said.”
- Follow-up: Comment on open source and graveyards: ” The reason my small company of 30 talk about it is because we develop call center software, and its seen by director level and up as a silver bullet. Open-source is seen as a way to not pay for software, to save licensing. So I think for most people who don’t think deeply about it open-source == free and no strings attached.”
