Accelerating Innovation — Uniting Research & Open Source

Open-source software (OSS) underpins all major cloud platforms and a large number of cloud-based services today. Core technologies that power cloud computing –Linux, Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry, Docker, to name a few –are developed in open communities. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation supports innovation in OSS for cloud computing and has sponsorship and participation from practically all major players in the cloud ecosystem.

A recent survey [1] of 3,440 professional developers and managers showed the widespread influence of open source, both in cloud technology and as an essential in-demand and growing skill in the industry. For example, 69% of respondents thought that contributions to open-source projects result in better professional opportunities.

Open Source Networking and a Vision of Fully Automated Networks

Ever since the birth of local area networks, open source tools and components have driven faster and more capable network technologies forward. At the recent Open Source Summit event in Europe, Arpit Joshipura, Networking General Manager at The Linux Foundation, discussed his vision of open source networks and how they are being driven by full automation.

“Networking is cool again,” he said, opening his keynote address with observations on software-defined networks, virtualization, and more. Joshipura is no stranger to network trends. He has led major technology deployments across enterprises, carriers, and cloud architectures, and has been a steady proponent of open source.
