Bloomberg TV: Most of Modern Society Running Linux

Filed under
Linux

We covered these main ideas:

1. Companies like Netflix are leveraging open source to decrease IT costs and increase scale and nimbleness. Netflix not only heavily uses open source and runs its infrastructure on AWS, they also aggressively open source tools they develop internally. Ten years ago mainstream would have found this outrageous and misguided. Today Netflix use it as a competitive advantage in hiring and maintaining their infrastructure. What are they investing the money they save on tech on? Original content that makes them even more competitive in the marketplace.
