Open Source Software (OSS) is transforming the way businesses acquire and manage software, at every level from operating systems to application. They are increasingly looking for innovation, flexibility, better ROI and cost reduction. We believe that in many cases Open Source applications can deliver all of these benefits. Some of the largest companies in the world today, such as Amazon, Yahoo! and Google, owe their success to Open Source.

Gone are the days when the power of Open Source was felt only at the operating system level. Today there are many applications, development languages and tools that can empower organizations and their IT departments with a wide array of choices to bring greater control, independence, innovation and cost savings. Whether it’s for the desktop, for supporting applications critical to your organization’s online presence, or for running the Back Office, there’s probably an Open Source based application to meet your needs.

With the rise of Open Source’s popularity, a new breed of enterprise-friendly OSS, also known as Commercial OSS, has come into existence. Commercial OSS is aimed at users who wish to enjoy the flexibility of Open Source with the support of proprietary software at a much lower cost. The rise in the number of Commercial OSS projects has generated an upsurge of interest in Open Source in many quarters.

However, despite Open Source’s excellent software engineering practices, low cost, comprehensive support options and innovative business models, there’s still widespread confusion about its benefits, and a reluctance to pursue an OSS strategy. Often this reflects a lack of appropriate resources within an organization.

Rugged Cloud has deep understanding and experience of Open Source, including infrastructure, products and specific open source tools. We have developed a comprehensive OSS solution set to help you craft an OSS strategy for your organization.
