Eren Niazi Named Open Source Evolution CTO

Eren is the original visionary/creator who pioneered the OSS movement and envisioned a world where the enterprises used open source software for large scale data center deployments. Consequently, the OSS technologies Niazi developed have become the model for global industry storage solutions.

78% of the internet currently runs on Open Source, according to recent data from ZDNet. Eren is a supreme advocate for open source as the Open Source evolution platform has proven to be 3 times faster and 50% more cost effective to support. This paradigm shift allows people to unlock opportunity and create new businesses for a fraction of the cost. This increases competitive advantage for fledgling startups.

"Eren Niazi is a well-known leader in the open source community having been one of the first to deploy enterprise open source solutions into Silicon Valley at OSS. He brings a wealth of experience in joining our dynamic Open Source Evolution team," said Jim Truong Founder and CEO of Open Source Evolution. "His deep industry knowledge, understanding of our technology, expertise in cloud services and IT are unmatched. His expertise will be a great contribution to our organizational growth."

Jim Truong has been one of the pioneers of the Linux movement. In 1995, he started a Linux company in a garage named ASL Inc. ASL was ranked the #2 Linux company in the US. Its most famous client is Linus Torvalds, who was working at Transmeta.

Jim wholeheartedly believes in the open source movement. As a technologist, Jim was one of the early adapters and supporters of the Linux cluster, which later became cloud computing. Jim believes open source will one day overtake the current proprietary model. Open source has evolved, and it is the leading force to cloud computing, cloud storage, data mining and AI. 

Open Source Evolution (OSE) will become one of the main catalysts for the open source movement. Its enterprise solutions will pioneer in the development of disruptive Open Source technologies. Jim believes OSE will change how the world views and adapts to open source technology.
