WHY OPEN SOURCE REQUIRES A BIGGER INVESTMENT AT AWS THAN ITS COMPETITORS
In the quest to get Amazon Web Services (AWS) to contribute "more" to open source (a dubious yardstick, as I've written), it's also worth evaluating what "more" means, relatively speaking. The same amount of money and contributions from two companies may require different levels of comparative investment. Let me explain. AWS announced recently that it was joining the Apache Software Foundation as a platinum sponsor, a $125,000 per year commitment. AWS had already joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a platinum member (which costs $350,000 per year for an existing Linux Foundation member). AWS also supports the Python Software Foundation ($70,000 per year) and other foundations, as well as a host of open source events like ApacheCon.Most of these are relatively new, and AWS' financial contributions to these foundations and events are far less than its primary cloud competitors, Microsoft and Google, have paid over the years.
