Pioneers in Open Source--Eren Niazi, Part I: the Start of a Movement and the Open-Source Revolution Redefining the Data Center


   

     
           
  Eren Niazi

     
           
     
           

The name may not be a familiar one to everyone,
but Eren Niazi can be credited with
laying the foundation and paving the way to the many software-defined and
cloud-centric technologies in use today.




When considering the modern data center, it's difficult to imagine a time when
open-source technologies were considered taboo or not production-grade, but
that time actually existed. There was a time when the data center meant closed
and propriety technologies,
developed and distributed by some of the biggest names in the industry—the days when EMC, NetApp, Hewlett Packard (HP), Oracle or even Sun
Microsystems owned your data center and the few applications upon which you
heavily relied.
It also was a time when your choice was limited to one vendor, and you would invest
big into that single vendor. If you were an HP shop, you bought HP. If you were
an EMC shop, you
bought EMC—and so on. From the customer's point of
view, needing to interact with only a single vendor for purchasing, management
and support was comforting.




However, shifting focus back to the present, the landscape
is quite different. Instead, you'll find an environment of mixed
offerings provided by an assortment of vendors, both large and small.
Proprietary machines work side by side with off the shelf commodity devices
hosting software-defined software, most of which are built on top of
open-source code. And half the applications are hosted in virtual machines
over a Hypervisor or just spun up in one or more containers.




These changes didn't happen overnight. It took visionaries like Eren Niazi
to identify the full potential of open-source software technologies. He saw
what others did not and, in turn, proved to an entire industry that open
source was not merely production-ready, but he also used that same technology to
redefine the entire data center.




His story is complicated, filled with ups and downs. Eren faced his
fair share of trials and tribulations that gave him everything, just to have it
all taken away. But, let's begin at the beginning.




Born in Sunnyvale, California, a little more than 40 years ago, Eren grew up down the
street from Steve Jobs, and on many occasions, he engaged the legendary
Apple co-founder in inspiring conversations. The two shared many
characteristics. Neither ever finished college. Both are
entrepreneurs and inventors. Niazi and Jobs each were driven from their own
companies, only to return again. Around age 12, Eren became
fascinated with computers and learned how to develop code. However, his
adventures in open-source technologies didn't truly start until the year
1998.
