Yesterday, Google Cloud publicly renewed their commitment to open source. They've been long-time contributors to Go, TensorFlow, Kubernetes, and many others, but they're announcing new strategic partnerships with a bunch of leading open-source projects and companies:
- Redis Labs
...we’ll be offering managed services operated by these partners that are tightly integrated into Google Cloud Platform (GCP), providing a seamless user experience across management, billing and support. This makes it easier for our enterprise customers to build on open-source technologies...
It seems to make sense for all parties, and could be seen as a direct response to AWS, who has gained notoriety recently for their "abuse" of open source.
Any reactions to this announcement?
