Independent Evaluation and Testing
The Instaclustr Certification for Open Source Software is a rigorous testing and evaluation program for selected open source technologies. The program continually assesses the health of selected open source projects and tests specific versions of open source software within the project, applying a repeatable and reproducible methodology.
Our certification process is aimed at benchmarking performance in controlled use cases, validating functional properties of open source software and verifying interoperability with the Instaclustr managed platform.
Transparency of Results
Users of open source technologies can use the results of the Instaclustr certification process as inputs to understanding and managing potential risks associated with production use of these technologies.

Our team performs independent assessments of various open source projects to provide insight and confidence in that open source projects are being effectively managed and controlled, that risks associated with licensing and use are suitable and that there are strong indications the project will enjoy ongoing support.
As part of our certification process we perform a suite of tests on a targeted release or version of open source software for functionality, performance and interoperability as a precursor to deploying the release onto the Instaclustr Managed Platform.
The results of the certification process are published and made widely available to provide transparency in our decision-making process and to help other organizations and engineers make informed decisions about deploying open source software for production environments.
Assessment of the quality & effectiveness of the projects governance, licensing and community and ecosystem for the chosen open source technology.
Testing of specific releases of software for functionality, performance and integration standards.
A Structured Approach
The Instaclustr Certification Framework follows a highly structured methodology to ensure transparency and repeatability.
