Rapid Growth for Open Source Solutions within the Data Center

By Staff

With the rapid growth for open source solutions within the data center it no wonder that a new report shows how open source solutions are influencing government data center consolidation; mandating and encouraging Government IT to choose open source solutions. The open source stack (LAMP stack), consisting of Linux, Apache, MySQL, and Perl/PHP/Python, is currently being used by government.

"Datacenter consolidation is about much more than just consolidation," said Shawn P. McCarthy, research director for IDC Government Insights. "It's also about migrating to new platforms, improving IT economics, eliminating unnecessary software licensing fees, and reducing associated management costs. Our research indicates that with federal investment, centralized open source solution stacks have already emerged at government sites. Because of this investment, and because SIs are heavily involved in the consolidation effort, we expect to see rapid growth for some of these open solution stacks."
