back to article Flippin' ECK, ours is the 'official' Elasticsearch experience for Kubernetes – Elastic

Elastic presented Elasticsearch for Kubernetes at an event in London this week, as well as explaining why it has acquired Endgame, an endpoint security specialist.

    I consider what companies like elastic, mongodb and redis are doing to it's licenses a douchification of open source...

    You knew the deal when you picked an open source license (and in case of elastic a less restrictive Apache that doesn't even require giving code back upstream), you've got vc money because of it (cause vcs don't understand much and just went with the open source hype at the time) and now you're screwing everybody with changing it? No sympathy for you in my book. Your own elastic cloud runs on linux, I assume - what if kernel devs change license on that?

      Sadly I forget where I read this quote, so I might not get it quite right and certainly can't attribute it, but it was something like "Open source is not a business strategy, it's merely a type of license."

    A post deleted by a moderator because they didn't understand it in context to the article it was supporting, which is understandable and although not good is not really at all bad ..... or they did understand it and it spooked them out, which is also understandable and although also not good has every potential to be real bad?

    Such sanction is very rare in deed indeed on El Reg, and it is that which makes the site and its pages such a deep premium mine of metadata information and future intelligence ...... all the news that is fit to print from views that are freely to be shared, with those that are destined to be very costly and/or incredibly valuable accosted and quarantined for the dubious attention and succour made available to interested invested parties in such as is only an extremely brief delay.

    A Rumsfeldism is appropriate here, methinks ...... "Reports that say something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know," Rumsfeld told a news briefing. "We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns -- the ones we don't know we don't know." ........ and they are always significantly more than just interesting especially whenever life-changing and Earth shattering. :-)

        Such are not ever for sale, but you can always readily purchase their services, AC. It is the particular peculiar nature of that kind of beast/carriage of burden. Bury it in fiat paper and one can just sit back and watch everything grow at a prodigious existential rate into a truly exponential threat.

        'Tis a right royal bankers' treat though ..... for retreats in safe havens which enrich and exercise the sovereign wealth funders of Vital Prime Premium Product Citadels ...... which nowadays are SMARTR IntelAIgent Stores with Secured Information Servers.

        Interesting times are ahead. Of that you can be assured and reassured time and time again :-)
