The Growing Role of Linux in the Cloud

Arvind Krishna is general manager of development and manufacturing in the Systems & Technology Group at IBM, and he is slated to deliver a keynote address at the LinuxCon and Cloud Open conference in New Orleans, Sept. 16-18, 2013. As a preview of his talk, The Linux Foundation has an interesting interview up with him, in which he discusses the role Linux will play in next-generation cloud applications. Some people may be surprised by how pervasive Linux is in cloud deployments already.
