Open Source

When the best ideas win, you can't lose.

Technology is knowledge made useful, science applied to solve problems. Science thrives in the open, when people are free to share their ideas and improve or build on the work of others. Every innovation is a modification or extension of a past breakthrough. Every new idea comes from connecting ideas that came before. Every solution comes from the sharing of a problem. Creation is always an act of collaboration.

OpenShift Origin

OpenShift is built on a stack of open source technologies. Only unaltered open source language runtimes and frameworks are used within the OpenShift platform. No proprietary APIs, technologies, or resources are used.
