Test your knowledge of open source terminology
Open source technology is an integral part of many aspects of the data center.
The concept of open source software dates back decades, although most IT professionals identify the Linux kernel foundation in the early 1990s as the beginning of modern open source operating systems. Today, open source terminology is expanding to include hardware designs as well.
Because its scope is so vast, data center managers, administrators, and support staff need to know the proper open source terminology when selecting tools and making roadmap decisions.
