Red Hat vs HPE

Whitehurst said he’s read up on HPE Ezmeral, a platform packaging Kubernetes with machine learning technology acquired through BlueData and a file system from MapR.

The platform “sounds quite compelling,” he said.

“The problem with that is the capability of taking open source software and delivering an enterprise-grade product and supporting that over a long period of time is difficult.”

“If you haven’t built the engineering capabilities in those projects to be able to take a version and support it through a lifecycle, you run into all kinds of support and stability issues.”

“The technology roadmap is littered with people who say, oh, I’m going to take this open source stuff and I have support people who get it. But they haven’t brought in large teams that are upstream contributors engaged in those projects. They’ve never been successful.”
