  3. Big acquisitions around Open Source (Red Hat, GitHub, Hortonworks)
  4. A new push by Open Source companies (Redis, Confluent) to change their licensing model to help protect them from public cloud providers taking their software and not giving back - http://dtrace.org/blogs/bmc/2018/12/14/open-source-confronts-its-midlife-crisis/
  5. Big funding and investments around HCI and Backup HCI
