Managed Open-Source-as-a-Solution cloud platform allows users to utilize Open Source software without the risks of deprecation and instability issues.

Instaclustr has announced the launch of its Open Source-as-a-Service platform. This comprehensive platform offers customers across industries - and from startups to the enterprise - fully hosted and securely managed Apache Cassandra, Apache Spark, Elasticsearch, Kibana, Lucene, and Zeppelin. Each is delivered to customers in its 100% open source form, with no vendor or technical lock-in. The platform arrives as the company continues to deliver top-line growth in excess of 100% YoY, and has reached milestones of 10 million node hours and 1 petabyte of data under management.

In an industry where, all too often, providers will deliver open source solutions repackaged into proprietary versions that promote vendor lock-in, Instaclustr is ensuring that every solution it provides will always consist of fully portable open source code.

Customers are empowered to utilize and customize its managed open source solutions however is optimal, while also providing the support and expertise required for businesses to fully focus on building their applications. This also means that customers receive all the benefits of true open source technology, including the ability to leverage the vast communities of developers and companies that use the exact same open source code base, and provide assurance and improvements much more rapidly than with proprietary products. At the same time, Instaclustr manages version control and patches to ensure that customers are always running the latest and most stable builds of open source solutions.

“The development of our Open Source-as-a-Service platform is the natural progression of Instaclustr,” said Peter Nichol, CEO, Instaclustr. “We’ve always maintained a commitment to empowering customers, providing much-needed hosting and management solutions that keep customers in control of their own destinies and their own core technology. With this release, we’re proud to formalize our commitment to 100% open source-only solutions. We have made it easier than ever to benefit from these powerful technologies delivered as a service, and without any of the strings attached found with proprietary solutions or commercial startups baking a single open source project.”
