Open Source is the New Data Center Standard!

Lower total-cost-ownership and growing product maturity have advanced open source relational database management solutions to occupy an important place in the data center. 

Gartner’s examination of the use of relational OSDBMSs in today’s enterprises* recommended evaluating the TCO as a replacement for commercial DBMS products.

The Gartner report, State of Open Source RDBMS, 2015* utilized the following strategic assumptions:

  • By 2018, more than 70% of new in-house applications will be developed on an OSDBMS and,
  • 50% of existing commercial RDBMS instances will have been converted or will be in process.

Learn how companies today are deploying relational OSDBMS and reserving more expensive licenses for the workloads that require specific functionality.
