Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"The Linux-Kongress 2009 conference was held in Dresden last week. The long-established conference hosted by the GUUG (German Unix Users Group) attracted its usual large number of prominent Linux developers both in the audience and as presenters. Its two-day schedule included speakers like kernel developer Theodore "tytso" Ts'o, who is known for his work on the Ext filesystems, Andi Kleen, Jan Kára, Jan Blunck, Heinz Mauelshagen, and Samba developer Volker Lendecke. Most of the presentations were of a high standard and offered a good overview of the current and future developments in the Linux kernel area.

"Shared innovation

"IBM developer Theodore Ts'o, who has been "outsourced" to the Linux Foundation as a CTO (Chief Technology Officer) for the time being, presented the conference's opening keynote. In his presentation "Linux and Open Source in 2010 and Beyond" (slides of the presentationPDF), he identified mobile computing and cloud computing as the two IT sectors where companies are currently showing a particular interest in Linux, replacing proprietary solutions with Linux-based technologies."
