"Fujitsu Limited, Hitachi Limited, IBM, and NEC Corp. today announced a partnership that will capitalize on the companies' global resources to refine features needed to drive Linux further into the enterprise. The companies, implementing a shared common plan to help Linux mature, will work together with the Linux community to develop various open source projects.

By working on open source projects, the partnership will ultimately offer customers added Linux features to deploy in their enterprise. One of the first projects the companies will work on will be a serviceability project designed to enhance problem isolation, the ability to quickly and precisely isolate problems in running systems. Other projects planned include scalability, and NUMA (Non-Uniform Memory Access) capabilities for Linux. The companies plan to work closely with the open source community to gain their insights and acceptance, while delivering simple, modular, high-quality, serviceable results."
