WalmartLabs to release OneOps cloud suite as open source

WalmartLabs, developers of ecommerce operations, are set to release the OneOps cloud technology as an open source.

OneOps is powerful cloud technology built to transform the way engineers develop and launch new products to customers. The technology suite delivers this with more speed and at a lower cost and helps them avoid the pitfalls of being “locked-in” to a cloud provider, by helping code developers write their own code.

“WalmartLabs have decided to upload the source code to GitHub by the end of 2015. This would help developers who need technology that can continuously manage and monitor the applications they develop when it's deployed in the cloud. It is great news for companies who have considered switching cloud providers but experience the “Hotel California Effect,” where they can “check out but never leave” their cloud provider because they're locked into the provider's proprietary APIs, architecture and tools,” Jeremy King, CTO of Walmart Global ecommerce, head of WalmartLabs, and Tim Kimmet, VP of Platform and Systems, WalmartLabs said on the company website.

OneOps has four main benefits which include cloud portability to move applications between cloud providers, continuous lifecycle management, help engineers to spin up a new environment to host their app in a matter of minutes, and help developers handle the proprietary APIs, architecture, tools and technologies.

By eliminating the barriers that cloud hosting providers have erected, OneOps will prove to be a better option based on price, customer service, and innovation. It's a winning scenario for all development-centric organizations. (GK)
