The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux and collaborative development, today announced that Agenda Open Systems, Apprenda, Doky.io, Exablox and Rausch Netzwerktechnik GmbH are joining the organization.
Industry reports estimate that 48 million applications will be available on the cloud by 2016 (Global Technology Outlook: Cloud 2014: A More Disruptive Phase), making cloud-based software more prevalent than ever. This evolution has led to new infrastructure-as-a-service models in IT – such as container technologies – being adopted to match the growing data and scale demands placed on enterprise networks. Today’s newest members represent this trend and are investing in Linux and collaborative development to advance these technologies.
