OPEN SOURCE COMMITTMENT
Why pay licensing fees when open source has the capability and the community?
The power back in your hands
Making the move to open source software is a one of power. You are empowered to make technology decisions that are the best for your company.
No more negotiating licensing fees
Open source software means that there is no technology lock in with excessive licensing fees. You no longer have to deal with the highly incentivised sales guy trying to re-negotiate a contract.
Follow the leader
When you have aspirations of having every person on the globe with an account on your platform or application then paying licensing fees for infrastructure software is not an option. Companies such as Google, Facebook and Apple are all more than comfortable with deploying open source technologies.
Mass adoption of open source has resulted in community growth and contribution. OSS adoption with suitable management and support arrangements is now the norm. Technology lock in is far more risky for an enterprise than using open source technologies.
DELIVERING FOR ENTERPRISE
Continuous availability and seamless scale for mission critical applications.
Our solutions and services are proven enterprise-grade. We have many customers that require zero downtime with constant and automated monitoring and alerting.
24/7/365 fully managed
You absolutely cannot claim to provide a managed service for Apache Cassandra if you do not have a 24/7 operation. Our customers deploying this technology need continuous availability – that is why they choose Apache Cassandra. Providing a person to come in and check and spend working hours on your cluster does not cut it. Who is managing your cluster and when are they managing your cluster?
Not for the faint hearted
To provide the support you need to be continuously available and seamless scale you need expertise available and constantly monitoring. Enterprise-grade support cannot be delivered by a startup that is either bootstrapped or underfunded. Founders being woken up at 2am to fix a problem is not a suitable arrangement for an enterprise, mission critical application.
