The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, announced on Thursday the addition of 38 Silver members and five Associate members. Linux Foundation reported that the members help support the development of shared open source technology, while accelerating their own innovation through open source leadership.
Linux Foundation member contributions help provide the infrastructure and resources developers need to grow and sustain many of the world’s most successful open source projects, which includes Hyperledger, Kubernetes, Linux, Node.js, and ONA. Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of the Linux Foundation, further explained:
“Successful large-scale, global open source communities require dedicated resources, support, and infrastructure, so it’s incredibly exciting to see 43 more organizations increase their commitment to open source. We look forward to working with our new members to better support the developers who build, secure, and maintain the open source systems we rely on every day.”
In addition to joining the Linux Foundation, many of the new members are contributing to projects such as Automotive Grade Linux, the Ceph Foundation, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Hyperledger, LF Edge and the GraphQL Foundation. The organization added:
“With the support of its members, the Linux Foundation hosts open source projects across technologies including networking (ONAP, OPNFV and more), security (Core Infrastructure Initiative), cloud (Cloud Foundry, Kubernetes and more), blockchain (Hyperledger) and more. This collaborative development model is helping technology rapidly advance in a way that benefits individuals and organizations around the world.”
