The approach of Elektrobit to open-source technology in the data centre, cloud or embedded system developments is to ensure a truly open environment. The open-source philosophy of Elektrobit is based on a customer-centric approach to eliminate vendor lock-in, while keeping options open and costs predictably low. Elektrobit promotes a truly open-source approach to business and technology as a foundation step for the future.
2. Open Source
Elektrobit uses the term “Open Source” for brevity and because it is the clearest descriptor in the context we operate. We do recognize that Open Source is more than just a development model and that exist ideals behind it. For example: the ideals to respect user freedom and community building, and specifically, the freedom to use, study, share, and improve software. Elektrobit has many engineers passionately standing behind the ideals of Free and Open Source Software. It is for these reasons that Elektrobit supports these ideals as a company.
When we discuss Open Source Software we refer to the definition of Open Source Licenses by the Open Source Initiative (OSI).
