The 10 Coolest Open-Source Software Tools Of 2021 (So Far)
Wade Tyler Millward
CRN’s list of 10 coolest open-source tools in 2021 so far include python-based restore tooling from Aiven and cloud-use cost visibility from Stackwatch.
This Finnish company turns open source tools into managed sources, but it also maintains various open source projects of its own.
Take for example PGHoard. PGHoard is a python-based restore tool for PostgreSQL, an open source object-relational database system. This tool uses cloud object stores to store backup data. Its sister tool MyHoard offers similar functions for MySQL.
In March, Aiven raised $100 million in a Series C round to bring new products to market, develop more open source technologies and expand internationally.
