The Power of Commercial Support for Open Core Products: Tata Steel Automotive Engineering

Aug 22, 2011 |

Like most business savvy customers, Tata Steel Automotive Engineering continuously monitors operational costs in an effort to guarantee they are receiving quality solutions, at cost-effective prices. When Tata Steel originally sought a workload management solution, Grid Engine was the perfect fit as an open-source solution. However, self-support solutions often contain hidden costs and risks, which lead TSAE to evolve from an open source solution to a commercial product with commercial sup­port and an open source core, from Univa Corporation.
