San Francisco, 22 October 2019 - Today, Cloud 66 is proud to announce its membership of the Open Invention Network (OIN) community. As a leading provider of operational tools for deploying and managing Rails, Node and Kubernetes-based applications on any cloud or server, Cloud 66 is committed to supporting the open source software (OSS) community and to ensuring freedom of action in the Linux ecosystem.

The free availability of open source projects reduces the cost of access to technology, which drives technological progress that improves society as a whole. This speeds up innovation, helps startups and lowers costs for enterprises. Cloud 66 is committed to the OSS community and hasreleased a number of projects as an open source.

"We believe that the open source projects that have had the most impact are those with a clear vision of what they wanted to achieve - for example Linux. Those projects need support from the community. This is one of the reasons why we joined OIN." Khash Sajadi, Cloud 66 CEO.

"Linux and open source projects are key elements of the open cloud.  Cloud 66 provides Rails, Node, and Kubernetes infrastructure to developers.  Given its activity in the cloud and open source focus, we are very pleased that Cloud 66 has joined the OIN community.”  Keith Bergelt, Open Invention Network CEO.
