Accessibility. The benefits of using open source software are wide and diverse, but maybe the most important is accessibility. OpenIO core and the object APIs are on GitHub and available as packages for the supported linux distributions. OpenIO can be freely downloaded to try it out and see if it’s the right fit for your needs. If it is, great! And if not, then no worries, and no vendor lock-in. Open source solutions are also more interoperable with other technologies, which gives you the freedom to work within the ecosystem of your choice.
Reduced TCO. With OpenIO you will have an overall lower TCO compared to proprietary software, because the core code is free and you only pay for the services and extra features that you need.
