Here’s how three HP Alliance solutions, running on HP Haven Big Data platform, provide a foundation for reaching these goals.

Use Oracle’s UPL, Abandon Your Intellectual Property

Martinfink2.PNGHP has historically taken a strong stand against the proliferation of open source licenses.  We’ve never proposed our own open source license. I started speaking out against license proliferation as early as 2005, pointing to the interoperability and compatibility issues raised by having a large number of open source licenses.  Many members of the open source community have also embraced the concept of non-proliferation. The reaction to any new license tends to center around whether a new license addresses an unmet need. That’s why I am concerned about a new license proposed by Oracle.
