Open Source Helps eBay Process $2000 Per Second

Filed under

The online auction house eBay continuously executes $2,000 worth of transactions a second and, to do so, requires a highly reliable transaction processing environment. EBay recently revealed that a key element of its transaction software is the WSO2 open source enterprise service bus (ESB).

EBay is known to be a large user of open source code, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the Apache Web Server, and Apache Tomcat lightweight application server, so the revelation it's using an open source ESB is not a total surprise. At the same time, WSO2's ESB is one of the youngest products in its class and one of the least well known. EBay declined a request to be interviewed and explain its reasons for adopting WSO2 ESB. But a few details emerged in a WSO2 case study that quotes eBay's senior manager of systems engineering, Abhinav Kumar, posted to the WSO2 website July 27.

“LEDE” OpenWrt fork promises greater openness

A “Linux Embedded Development Environment” (LEDE) fork of the lightweight, router-oriented OpenWrt Linux distribution vows greater transparency and inclusiveness.
