The rise of the cloud and as-a-service approach caught open source by surprise. Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen other companies than Red Hat succeed and even go public. However, in a short amount of time the open source business model is at risk again due to as a service approach and many rising OSS companies added licensing limitations (MongoDB’s SSPL,..) to mitigate the OSS cloud challenge.

This step is not enough as with the cloud scale, both Microsoft and AWS provide MongoDB compatible APIs and more over, the OSI renders the new licenses as non open source. It is a lose:lose strategy.

At ScyllaDB, we chose to reverse the direction and go after the cloud.

OSS used to disrupt close source products by offering an alternative. The session will cover the new Scylla Alternator project, a new open source project by ScyllaDB that aims to democratize a major cloud benefit and make it approachable for everyone.
