Open Source Integration

Integrative finds its roots in integrating solutions and technologies of different vendors and suppliers. The last 10 years, a lot of these solutions and technologies come out of the open-source camp, something we cheer on as open-source based solutions fit perfectly in our evangelism of using non-proprietary solutions.

Now, open-source is not for everyone and certainly not for the faint-of-heart. Although community support works great for technologists and the digitally literate, in the commercial world of service level agreements and recovery time objectives, it is not something that can be depended on. Therefore we are glad to see that many software companies embrace the open-source software and back it with commercial support to make it a suitable solution for enterprise IT departments.

Below you will find a list of open-source projects and products that we contribute to, support and frequently use in our solution architectures.




Although not a commercially backed project by itself, open-stack is adopted by many Linux distributions and cloud providers as the de-facto standard open-source based virtualization infrastructure. Integrative has built, and supports many open-stack based private and public cloud solutions including our own Legal-IT community cloud. Utilizing this magnificent suite of projects (Nova,Swift,Cinder,Keystone,Glance,Horizon and others) in combination with the backing of the trusted support organizations of Red Hat, IBM, Canonical and others, we provide enterprise grade virtualization infrastructure based on an vibrant open source community.
