Right Yeah we know. That is why Open Source, Open Core and Freemium based companies exist. They are all there, just like Red Hat, ready to send you expensive but extremely talanted people that can help you get the most out of your linux or other open source software. The reality is that these more expensive people are still cheaper than the cost of the software alone. Then add in-house or Exernal support staff to implement it just as you would for the open source software. The article recounts a lot more points and is definately something to remember when you are talking to your boss and other executives.
In case you have been hiding and ignoring the Linux news, surprise, surprise, Linux is growing inside of large companies. The Linux Foundation with the Yeoman group have done a survey to prove it. The most interesting fact to me was that most of the growth or the largest amount of growth were in greenfield/new installations. This has very positive long term consequences since most companies tend not to switch to a different OS after getting a system up and functional.
This is a great example of how one company has progressed down it's path towards using Linux. It's a great article becuase they discuss not only the things that worked but the things that didn't. Overall thought it could be a great help if your struggling to get Linux in the door or get more Linux running.
We have been hearing a lot about NoSQL databases over the last couple of years. If you are curious about what the good and bad things about them who better to ask than the nice folks over at Database Journal. They wrote a great article that should help you get started on your path to determinng whether NoSQL databases are right for your next project. There were several other links on the page pointing to deeper discussions on the topic of NoSQL databases. It's a very balanced and well thought out article worth the time to read.
