Open source-based businesses have successfully relied a small but reliable set of business models, including the support model and the freemium model. More recently, companies have discovered that the Cloud offers a new monetization model, focused on reliability, scalability and simplified configuration. For example, while Citrix monetizes the open source Xen hypervisor via traditional models, Amazon charges for Xen by the hour with EC2… and who’s raked in more money? In this talk, Jeff uses his experience as a Amazon Web Services product manager and CEO of Twilio to discuss the newest cloud business model and how it’s enabling a new breed of business opportunities.
