Are public clouds just vultures to Commercial Open Source companies, taking their technology and giving little in return? In my role at Pivotal I have a first-hand seat in understanding how Public Clouds interact with Commercial OSS companies, the dynamics involved and more importantly: (1) how Commercial OSS companies can build significant business on the backs of Public Clouds, (2) The dynamics and power that COSS companies have with Public Cloud providers (spoiler: COSS have more power than they realize) and (3) how to position to take advantage of the immense opportunity.

In this session we'll talk game-theory, power-dynamics, objectives, positioning all in effort to help both COSS companies and OSS communities to pull jujitsu moves on Public Cloud providers to turn potentially competitive situations to win-wins for all involved.
