Use of open source technology

Whilst Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator is not itself an open source product, it utilises a number of open source components. We have also contributed to several open source projects, and have open sourced a number of our tools and utilities.

You can find links to specific open source contributions we have made using the menu bar on the left.

Roll of honour

Below we list a few of the open source components we are proud to say we use:


Obtaining the source code for open source components

Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and unless otherwise indicated per the menu to the left, the source of all open source components is available through Ubuntu's source repository. On a Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator install, simply type:

$ aptitude source packagename

to retrieve the source.

There are a small number of open source packages distributed under the GPL licence which we have either patched, or used more recent versions than are supplied with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (currently this list is a patched version of open-iscsi, and a patched version of the Java http server). To install the source for these, type:

$ aptitude install extility-gpl-source

We also publish repositories of our modified open source components on our GitHub site.

Save for the above, Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator contains no modifications to open source components which operate under "copy left" licences (i.e. ones requiring publication of the source code of modifications) save where such modifications have been contributed upstream to the project itself and/or to Ubuntu. It is Flexiant's business practice, however, to publish all modifications to open source components, whether required by the licence or not. The pages linked from the menu bar to the left reflect this.
