Linux and DevOps share a common agenda - scalability. Scalability enables fast software delivery, without forcing developers to compromise the quality of their codebase. Scalability promotes measurable and self-paced growth. Linux was designed with scalability in mind. It was during the days when UNIX was the operating system in charge. One day, UNIX was closed off for modification, and developers no longer had control over the inner workings of the operating systems. Linux was born out of this need, and today it powers almost all of the technologies you're using in your everyday life.
