This dichotomy has existed for decades, with both sides achieving great levels of success. However, I would argue that the stakes for AI are higher than we’ve ever seen, and that the open source model is critical for the productive, economically feasible, and safe productization and consumption of AI.

And, in terms of open source, the Kubernetes project should serve as the blueprint for the way in which we develop, govern, fund, and support AI projects, large language models (LLMs), training paradigms, and more.

Yes, it’s a container orchestration solution that has effectively met a market need. But, more importantly in this context, Kubernetes is one of the best functioning communities in the history of technology development.

Since Kubernetes joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in 2016, thousands of organizations and tens of thousands of individuals have contributed to the project,
