The community is in turmoil around Elastic's announced plan to take Elasticsearch and Kibana off open source. In this episode, both Dotan and Mike have the pleasure of hosting Tomer where we discuss the recent news of Elastic moving Elasticsearch and Kibana to a dual non-OSS license - SSPL and Elastic License - and the implications that have on the open source community around it, including plans to fork Elasticsearch and Kibana, AWS announcement and more. We also talk about what Logz.io hopes to do, and how it wants the OSS to be better than ever.
Tomer Levy is co-founder and CEO of Logz.io. Before founding Logz.io, Tomer was the co-founder and CTO of Intigua, and prior to that he managed the Intrusion Prevention System at CheckPoint. Tomer has an M.B.A. from Tel Aviv University and a B.S. in computer science and is an enthusiastic kitesurfer.
