Build Your Open Source Stack: OpenLogic Stack Builder

Open Source

Choosing Your Open Source Technologies

Open source software is booming. More and more businesses are beginning to adopt more OSS technologies and finding faster innovation freedom. According to Gartner, over 95% of IT organizations use some form of open source software in mission-critical IT workloads. And that footprint grows by 30% annually. Are you looking to be a part of the movement? Not sure where to start? 
Building your open source stack can be overwhelming. There are thousands of open source solutions to choose from. It can be hard to know what questions to ask in your search. Many organizations find themselves running open source packages that don’t interact with each other well. Organizations are left with an overwhelming amount of research to do and, potentially, the lack of resources to make a proper decision. Does this sound familiar? In order to simplify organizing your OSS architecture, we’ve created the OpenLogic Stack Builder

This free tool enables you to easily navigate open source technologies in every level of the OSS stack. With the stack builder, you can confidently choose your open source platform, database, middleware, application runtime, and monitoring tools. Along the way, you’ll receive free, expert recommendations — including a personalized report — for choosing open source technologies to support the key layers in your technology stacks. Click here to build your custom stack!

How Does the OpenLogic Technology Stack Builder Work?

Here’s how it works:

  1. Click on a layer and answer a few multiple-choice questions about your needs.
  2. Based on your answers, we list one or more free open source technologies that could work well for that layer.
  3. You specify the technologies that you want more information about.

After you have made all of your selections, you can download a free customized report that shows you:

  • Our recommendations for each open source stack layer.
  • High-level information about why the recommended technologies could work well for you.
  • Additional guidance for other free and open source technologies that could help you meet requirements, including options to help with automation and CI/CD.
