Elastic vs AWS has been an interesting saga. Elastic has an Open Source product and tries to monetize a hosted service. AWS competes with them with their Elastic’s code.— Dare Obasanjo (@Carnage4Life) January 22, 2021
Elastic changes their OSS license & now Amazon is forking the project.
When we announced the change, we sadly expected this. This what made it so hard. But I am also relieved. Relieved we are free to focus on products vs. battle abuse. Relieved that I can trust our community will see through this misinformation & confusion https://t.co/wIxiYnL5Ca https://t.co/bj5lQ91Cbn— Shay Banon (@kimchy) January 21, 2021
New: Elastic's decision to change the licenses on two of its open-source projects appears to have backfired, with AWS announcing plans to fork both projects under its wing. Here's the backstory on Elasticsearch and open source in the cloud era:https://t.co/9vT7LJwCUS— Tom Krazit (@tomkrazit) January 21, 2021
‘It’s not OK’: Elastic takes aim at AWS, at the risk of major collateral damage https://t.co/m6Xl2sSMUc < a lot of opinions and moving parts in this debate, but I thought @tomkrazit did a nice job laying out the details, and letting the reader decide what to think.— Richard Seroter (@rseroter) January 22, 2021
"Despite Elastic’s repeated assertions that what AWS had been doing [forking #Elasticsearch] was 'NOT OK,' what was even more 'NOT OK,' it seems, was the closing off of a previously open source project."--@rwwmike @thenewstack https://t.co/V2TOStqbwI #OpenSource— Joab Jackson (@Joab_Jackson) January 22, 2021
You should not believe that Elastic changed their license for other reasons than to maximize their profits.— Rafael Winterhalter (@rafaelcodes) January 22, 2021
You should neither believe that AWS is forking it for other reasons than to maximize theirs.
There's no ideology in this conflict, just stop it.https://t.co/WfgbNqdWPt
I have no opinion to state on the whole Elastic/AWS licensing brouhaha, but I have to quibble with this post describing @jenkinsci as having forked. That's just not true: I was the lead negotiator, so I should know that Hudson renamed to Jenkins. https://t.co/HhWGk5PVw0— abayer is antifa why aren’t you (@abayer) January 21, 2021
here we go, the inevitable fork from AWS. https://t.co/s5XpcU0mpT - lets get it out of the way up front: this is what they had to do, and it's no surprise their doing it. They don't deserve a super hero cape for it, but its the right thing for their customers and the community— Adam Jacob (@adamhjk) January 21, 2021
I've greatly admired the Elastic people and what they achieved, but this latest announcement from AWS depicts a more sensible future for the OSS community I love.— Sanne (@SanneGrinovero) January 22, 2021
Too bad Elastic 😥 I hope you'll turn around, or best of luck in your new niche.https://t.co/0UmzhW1VYz
