    The potential to share goes far beyond technical features. One of the simplest steps will be sharing test cases and test results. This simple effort of sharing is going to strengthen the quality of code and the delivered solutions. In sharing results, OpenStack, Docker and other powerful open source successes can better support each other.

    The potential to share goes far beyond technical features. One of the simplest steps will be sharing test cases and test results. This simple effort of sharing is going to strengthen the quality of code and the delivered solutions. In sharing results, OpenStack, Docker and other powerful open source successes can better support each other.

Open source projects like OpenStack, Docker, OPNFV and OpenDaylight are more supported and better funded than ever before. They mark a broader trend of large, active and well-resourced open source projects that are among the leaders in Big Data, cloud computing, operating systems and development practices. Open source has come a long way in 30 years – and its success marks a new era for the overall OSS community.

But success does not come without potential pitfalls. One of the greatest obstacles to project success isn’t the proprietary competition – it’s the lack of communication between large open source projects like OpenStack and Docker.

With help from SUSE’s Alan Clark, board chairman for the OpenStack Foundation, here is how these open source successes must integrate more effectively, in order to succeed together.
