At the age of 25, Alex Polvi made his name in the tech industry. In 2010, he bought his first startup Cloudkick, for an estimated $30 million. Now he has made a new company, CoreOS, and it’s worth watching for several reasons.
CoreOS, makes an operating system based on Linux that works like the custom operating system Google built for itself, so its obvious that it got an interesting technology. Moreover, its a Y Combinator startup, that has some interesting angels.
Greg Kroah-Hartman, is a well known rockstar in the field of Linux and he is the adviser of CoreOS. Kroah-Hartman is one of the two leading people in the field of Linux. The other is Linux creator Linus Torvalds.
CoreOS is a free and open source same as Linux. So, its an advantage for the users as anyone can take it, modify it. The company will make money selling for subscriptions to enterprises who want to pay for extra support.
