To celebrate #FOSSFeb, we’ve created a list of some of our favorite Open Source projects to use and hack on. Here it is,

Onyx Point’s Upstream/Downstream Thumbs Up: 2017

  • SIMP
  • Puppet – and just about everything in its ecosystem
  • Beaker – Part of the Puppet ecosystem, but with potential to grow beyond it
  • Elasticsearch
  • Gitlab – Source code hosting and integrated CI in a box, with an open and responsive community
  • Consul – Highly consistent data storage, service discovery, and lock management.
  • Vagrant – We use vagrant to make it easy to do automated testing on real operating systems
  • oVirt – Free VMWare-like virtualization platform with flexibility
  • libvirt – main component of oVirt
  • Docker
  • PostgreSQL
  • Open Project
  • Only Office
