Instaclustr Bringing Open Source Perspectives and Data Management Best Practices to Several Industry Conferences in Fall 2021
August 31, 2021

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 31, 2021 – Instaclustr, delivering reliability at scale through its fully managed platform for open source data technologies, today announced extensive participation at data management and open source technology conferences throughout September and October. 

Anil Inamdar, the VP & Global Head of Data Solutions at Instaclustr, will lead sessions on how businesses should assess the viability of pure open source technologies for their use cases compared to open core alternatives. Inamdar has been invited to speak on the topic to audiences at DeveloperWeek Global – Cloud and All Things Open. He will also be presenting at Data Con LA, on how organizations can best optimize Redis for their use cases. Paul Brebner, the Technology Evangelist at Instaclustr, is also speaking at All Things Open. He will lead a deep dive into how to build and scale a zero-code streaming data pipeline using fully open source projects, including Apache Kafka and complementary technologies. 

In addition to its speaking sessions, Instaclustr is participating at several global and U.S. conferences throughout the next several weeks:

  • Infobip Shift: the largest developer event in Southeastern Europe (September 7-8, Croatia and virtual)
  • RustConf: the annual conference for Rust developers (September 14, virtual)
  • DeveloperWeek Global – Cloud Conference: part of the world’s largest virtual software developer event series (September 14-15, virtual)
  • Kafka Summit Americas: the premier event for developers, architects, data engineers, and DevOps professionals working with streaming data (September 14-15, virtual)
  • Data Con LA: the largest annual data conference in Los Angeles (September 17-19, virtual)
  • ApacheCon: gathering the latest innovations in open source Apache projects in a collaborative environment (September 21-23, virtual)
  • Open Source Summit: the Linux Foundation’s annual conference for open source developers and technologists (September 27-30, Seattle and virtual)
  • Big Data Paris: bringing together big data professionals for hands-on workshops and strategic best practices (September 28-29, Paris and virtual)
  • All Things Open: focusing on the tools, processes, and people making open source possible (October 17-19, Raleigh and virtual)

“Enterprise demand for fully open source technologies across the data stack continues to accelerate – and with good reason,” said Inamdar. “The performance, reliability, and cost-advantages of mature open source projects are there for the taking. Still, many organizations continue to struggle when evaluating open source solutions compared to open core. This has been especially true in 2021, where a few high-profile open source projects changed course to become more closed. While assessing a project’s licensing terms and community health are important, organizations must also discern the underlying business motivations and incentives of the vendors and technology providers they will rely on to deliver or support their open source data-layer software.”
