Online Music and Open Source Business Models

| There is a famous story of the Stone Soup, 
| where many free ingredients came together 
| to make an amazing finished product.  Lest 
| you think itâs just a fable, Red Hat and 
| Ubuntu do exactly thatâtheyâve combined 
| major open source projects such as Linux, 
| Gnome, Apache, Firefox, Thunderbird, 
| OpenOffice, and MySQL and built major 
| businesses from them.


Open source evolving with the cloud

| One such example is MuleSoftâs new offer of 
| Tomcat application server via the GoGrid 
| cloud. The product, MuleSoft Cloudcat, 
| consists of cloud-based Apache Tomcat on 
| GoGrid with commercial support from 
| MuleSoft.
| Weâre also seeing examples of new open 
| source software for the cloud. Weâve 
| covered the use of unpaid, community Linux 
| in the cloud, but a new cloud-specific 
| distribution, CloudLinux, may also have 
| some interesting implications, particularly 
| for hosters and other service providers. 
| CloudLinux, compatible with Red Hat 
| Enterprise Linux clone CentOS, is 
| commercially backed and supported by a 
| company of the same name.

OpenSAF in Commercial Deployment

,----[ Quote ]
| The OpenSAF Foundation, the not-for-profit 
| organization supporting the OpenSAF open 
| source high availability middleware 
| projects, today announced that Ericsson has 
| deployed the OpenSAF technology in carrier 
| networks. This represents the first public 
| statement by a major equipment manufacturer 
| on commercial adoption, development and 
| deployment of OpenSAF and demonstrates the 
| quality and maturity of the open source 
| project.



10 Ways that Enterprises use Linux

| 9. Google Search Appliances - Google builds its
| search appliances on the Linux platform. If
| you're using one in your company, you're using
| Linux. Sure Google uses a special version of
| just about everything for their appliances but
| it's built on the solid stability of Linux.
| 8. Monitoring Services - If you're doing any
| network monitoring or system performance
| checking, chances are good that you're using
| Linux to do it. Large companies use commodity
| hardware and free software to do their bidding
| where possible. Projects like Orca make life
| easier for IT professionals who must find and
| deploy tools that are scalable, inexpensive and
| return a lot of bang for the amount of effort
| applied. Orca and Sysstat are absolutely
| indispensable for large networks where you have
| to manage thousands of disparate systems.
| 7. Development Platform - Since Linux comes
| standard with so many development tools such as
| Eclipse, C, C++, Mono, python, perl, PHP and
| many, many others; it's no wonder that it's the
| world's most popular development platform. It
| contains thousands of dollars worth of
| development software all free of charge and
| that's good news for developers in all parts of
| the globe.
