Free and Open Source Software
Open Source is open source software. The source code of such software is available for viewing and modification. And this is not just a technological definition,
which means the technical availability of the source codes of the program, it is a philosophical concept that implies that the source code of the software should be available to everyone,
and money should be taken only for specific services (implementation, support, training, revision). The most famous representatives of this class are Linux and FreeBSD
operating systems, Apache Web server, MySQL and PostgreSQL database servers, Asterisk VoIP PBX, Postfix/Roundcube mail server, KVM Hypervisor and many other useful enterprise-level products.
Benefits of Open Source Products:
- Low cost of ownership. The user pays not for using the programs themselves, but only for technical support, if needed. Dependence on manufacturers of software products,
on their licensing and pricing policy, is reduced, the need for license fees is completely eliminated.
- High reliability and safety. The operability and correct functioning of OpenSource products are verified by millions of enthusiasts and professionals around the world.
At the same time, code availability means predictable behavior. In the field of servers used in business - database servers, mail servers, file servers, etc.
