How Open source helps the Europe’s 3rd busiest airport

Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport, Europe’s third busiest airport, decided recently to turn to using open source software to become more efficient and offer better service. Servicing more than 63.6 million passengers and processing more than 1.7 million tons of cargo last year, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is Europe’s third largest airport in terms of passenger number and cargo volume. With the help from open source solutions company, Red Hat, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol started to create a self-service, multi-cloud platform for its internal IT team and its business partners, slashing development time as it creates new services for travellers. The 100-year-old airport reviewed its IT services strategy and wanted a scalable application platform […]

5 Success stories of using MongoDB

Hand-in-hand with the big data revolution has been the development of non-relational databases required to do all of this big data analysis. While it is too early to declare a winner in the NoSQL race, MongoDB seems to be leading the pack in terms of mindshare and customers, not to mention capital raised. With a successful team of tech veterans, MongoDB is generally acknowledged as the leader, even by its competitors. MongoDB is a free and open-source cross-platform document-oriented database program. Classified as a NoSQL database program, MongoDB uses JSON-like documents with schemas. MongoDB is developed by MongoDB Inc., and is published under a combination of the GNU Affero General […]

Facebook’s success story of using Hadoop

With tens of millions of users and more than a billion page views every day, Facebook ends up accumulating massive amounts of data, especially considering the amount of media it consumes. One of the challenges that Facebook has faced since the early days is developing a scalable way of storing and processing all these bytes since using this historical data is a very big part of how they can improve the user experience on Facebook. Years ago, Facebook began playing around with the idea of implementing, The Open Source Software, Hadoop to handle their massive data consumption and aggregation. Their hesitant first steps of importing some interesting data sets into […]

Oracle Success Story with OSS, Haddop

Oracle customers are facing a big data problem, and Hadoop has become the answer – reluctant as Oracle is to admit it. Speaking at the Oracle product and strategy update in London, Oracle president Mark Hurd said that the company’s customers are growing their data up to 40% a year, putting tremendous pressure on IT budgets. “Growth of 40% data with customers who spend $10,000 a terabyte to house the data; most of our customers spend 10 of their IT budgets on storage, and if you take those three numbers and put them together you’re going to grow your IT budgets 3-5% just housing the data,” said Hurd. Oracle offers […]

Walmart’s success story using OpenStack

Since its genesis as part of a NASA/Rackspace joint effort, dozens of companies have signed on in support of OpenStack. Its widespread support has become something of a double-edged sword, with critics pointing out that, although a lot of companies claim to support it, it’s unclear how many are actually contributing to or even using OpenStack. Still, there are more than 6,000 lines of code in OpenStack, so someone is doing something. Despite having to contend with Amazon and CloudStack, OpenStack is firmly entrenched in the cloud market. OpenStack is a free and open-source software platform for cloud computing, mostly deployed as infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), whereby virtual servers and other resources […]

LiMux .. An open source success story from Germany

Over 14 years ago, the city of Munich took a decision that was bound to put its IT administrators in the spotlight. At that time it was clear that Microsoft would soon stop supporting Windows NT 4.0, the operating system that ran most of the more than 10,000 desktop machines in the Bavarian capital. The IT specialists and politicians in Munich had to decide: a migration was inevitable, but to where? In May 2003 the city council decided to migrate to Linux, beginning with a one-year concept phase. As experience over recent years has shown, the decision in favour of LiMux (Linux in Munich) marked a turning point not only […]

LET’S ENCRYPT: how an open source tool make internet security accessible to everyone

Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated and open certificate authority, run for the public’s benefit and operated by The Linux Foundation. The objective of Let’s Encrypt is to make it possible to set up an HTTPS server and have it automatically obtain a browser-trusted certificate, without any human intervention. The key principles behind Let’s Encrypt are: Free: Anyone who owns a domain can get a certificate validated for that domain at zero cost. Automatic: The entire enrollment process for certificates occurs painlessly during the server’s native installation or configuration process, while renewal occurs automatically in the background. Secure: Let’s Encrypt serves as a platform for implementing modern security techniques and […]

مقاومة التغيير للبرمجيات مفتوحة المصدر.. دروس مستفادة من تجربة جنوب أفريقيا

طورت عدد من الدول حول العالم سياسات واستراتيجيات لتشجيع استخدام البرمجيات الحرة مفتوحة المصدر، ومن هذه الدول جنوب أفريقيا التي واجهت بعض الصعوبات في تنفيذ هذه السياسات. ونشرت دراسة في عام 2015، قام بها قسم علم المعلومات في جامعة جنوب أفريقيا، نتائج تجربة محلية أقيمت لدراسة نتائج استخدام البرمجيات مفتوحة المصدر في مجموعة مختارة من الوكالات الحكومية. وأقيمت التجربة لمدة 30 يوماً خلال شهر سبتمبر من عام 2013، حيث تم التوصية باستخدام برمجية إدارة المحتوى الإلكتروني مفتوحة المصدر، ألفارسكو Alfresco، في الوكالات الحكومية المختارة كبرمجية إضافية أو كبديل للبرمجيات مغلقة المصدر الموجودة فيها. وكشفت الدراسة أن أغلبية الجهات الحكومية المختارة فضلت استخدام البرمجيات مغلقة المصدر التي تعمل بها بدلا من […]
