Combining Flexibility and Control: A New Model for OS/Platform Management

Today’s OS and platform engineers are between a rock and a hard place. Application and other enterprise dependencies have never been more varied, dynamic and complex, which makes it difficult to standardize on a common OS or middleware platform. At the same time, customized versions of the off-the-shelf options from OS and middleware vendors are extremely difficult to manage over time.

Today, platform groups face two bad choices: They can accept the “plain vanilla” off-the-shelf vendor version or they can customize their own. It’s a classic tradeoff between cost and flexibility. When cost wins, business requirements go unmet. When flexibility wins, IT pays a heavy price.

The reality is that this is an unacceptable tradeoff. Today’s OS and platform groups need to combine the flexibility of a custom platform with the control of a standardized platform. Until now, there hasn’t been a good way to achieve both objectives.
