The History of Our Open Source ECP

Many of our community users have been asking us about an Open Source version of ECP, so we would like to answer a few of your questions here…


The original Open Source ECP offering (available as Enomaly ECP Community Edition under the AGPL license) was designed for cluster administration of virtual machines in small private cloud environments, and did not include the scalability and carrier-class features of our current products. The open source Community Edition of the ECP architecture was an important development stepping stone for us. Enomaly has since made many significant developments to our product line, and we encourage you to explore our technology.


Our current platform, Enomaly ECP Service Provider Edition, is a completely different product. The many differences between the Service Provider Edition and the Community Edition include:

Current customer demands require that we focus on expanding our commercial offerings via the Service Provider Edition and the High Assurance Edition (scheduled for release this quarter) of ECP, while our future plans include continued support for Open Source versions of our product line. So please check back with us regularly.
