So maybe that's a yes? (Not trying to be cheeky. Just hadn't thought of it in that way. Our goal is always to try to do more. Some of that "more" is easier as customers tell us they care about oss, making it easier to justify investments. As you know, free code isn't free 😇

I admit I don't know what the talking points were before. 😂 And I'm not sure we have any new ones (sincerely, and they'd come from me if we had them). BUT I do like being able to point to obvious examples like this, Redis, etc, which are a combo of ppl and corp backing.

Ah...hmm. That's a great question. I guess a poor analogy might be payment of taxes toward public infra. But I'm going to think more about this. That's a great thought

I'm not sure I understand. Think of a company you'd naturally associate with strong open source commitments (Red Hat? Mozilla?). For every $1 worth of code they contribute, they benefit from $1,000,000,000 worth of others' contributions. We all do. It's how it works

I suspect many smoke alarms are used until that first maddening, interminable beeping and then the batteries are ripped out as the only apparent solution. Someone should make one that isn't terrible

And I should add: I'm mostly grateful for the community, and that we get to be part of it. I love that we're showing up to "chop wood, carry water" in a significant way, but I'm mindful of all those who have been doing so for a long time. We're here to help

As a personal note, we spent years and travelled many miles relentlessly collaborating with other projects and companies because having a common foundation layer is a net win for the developers in the long term. AWS has hired me to improve the experience. That's why I'm excited.

A few things I 😍 about this: 1) Community. is accelerating collab w/ Splunk, Red Hat, etc. to make even better; 2) Upstream. We contribute back 100% of our OTel work; 3) People. We hired the fabulous to dedicate more of her time to improve OTel

I think self-reported. And you offer some good questions. I think, in general, database footprint will keep growing, though how fast, to your implied point, might be tied to how well/poorly you're doing to manage it

The database survey is out. Among other findings, 82% of respondents saw >5% growth in their DB footprint; 62% reported a more significant increase & 12% grew over 50% ("big data" keeps getting bigger...)

But AWS isn't alone in contributing to or benefiting from Redis. remains at its heart but a number of great companies offer managed services (and a swelling number of individuals contribute to the code). This makes the Redis pie so much bigger...and better

It gets better when starts to help fund further development. Later Salvatore decides to leave (), and Redis Labs opts to open up governance of the project, naming as 1 of 5 maintainers ()

Redis started with , an amazing developer (and someone I wish I looked like). He couldn't scale MySQL cost-effectively for an application so he built his own database (now one of the most popular databases in the world).

In my keynote, I talked about the success story. I love to talk about how helps to maintain Redis, but I love just as much to talk about the incredible work has done to enable this. A brief walk-through of the relevant slides...

For those that depend on .NET Framework but want to move to .NET Core to tap into open source innovation (like the ability to run on Linux) while lowering costs, AWS is open sourcing its Porting Assistant to make the journey that much easier 🥰
