Driven, available now in public beta is a free cloud service for development environments only. Concurrent will provide online support for Driven. Driven Enterprise, which Wensel says will be generally available in the second quarter of 2014, will require an annual subscription. It is intended for both development and production environments and will support both developers and operations. Driven Enterprise will be available via on-premise and in the cloud, and Concurrent will provide enterprise support for the product.
"The product itself will be closed," Wensel explains. "Driven is an open service and freely available for use, but you don't get the source code. We feel this is the most natural, non-conflicting way to monetize open source."
"We want the initial offering to be online so we can iterate and learn," he adds. "We're putting out a basic initial set of features. We have a long list of things we're going to want to add."
