[Lf-announce] Linux Foundation Monthly Newsletter: September 2010
QuIC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated and is focused on developing software for mobile open source platforms, optimizing open source software for mobile technologies, and enabling developers to build applications easily for the millions of devices powered by Qualcomm’s chipsets.
“QuIC’s membership in the The Linux Foundation represents the evolution
and growth of the Linux operating system and its increasing use in the
mobile and consumer electronics markets,” said Jim Zemlin, executive
director at The Linux Foundation. “We’re very excited to have QuIC join
The Linux Foundation at the Platinum level and look forward to
continuing our work to advance Linux in this important market.”

Highlighted keynotes and sessions include:
* Japanese Kernel Developer Panel:
Developers from NTT, Fujitsu and Hitachi will discuss kernel
development challenges and opportunities as they relate specifically to
developers and companies in Japan. Moderated by LWN Editor Jon Corbet.
* Greg Kroah-Hartman, fellow at Novell and Linux kernel maintainer, will discuss the Linux Kernel Stable Tree: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/2010/linuxcon-japan/kroah-hartman
* IBM's Dan Frye will share IBM's experience in working with Linux and within the collaborative development model over the last 10 years: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/2010/linuxcon-japan/frye
* Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation, will talk about how Linux has become the fabric of computing and what this means for developers, vendors and users: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/2010/linuxcon-japan/zemlin* Hitachi's Takahiro Yasui will provide the Development Status of LVM Mirror: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/2010/linuxcon-japan/yasui
The Linux Foundation End User Summit will take place October 12-13, 2010 at the Hyatt
Regency Jersey City in New Jersey and will provide end users and kernel
developers a direct connection to one another for advancing the features most
critical to using Linux in the enterprise.
The Linux Foundation End User Summit will feature keynotes, Open Spaces Sessions, technical conference sessions and case studies. Open Spaces Sessions are intended to provide attendees a forum in which they can actively be a part of the discussion on a particular topic and not just an observer. This facilitates collaboration and active progress on requirements among all community members – enterprise users, kernel developers and vendors.
Highlights from this year’s program include:
* Keynote from British Telecom’s Chief Scientist JP Rangaswami – “Purple Haze to Purple Rain: Why the Cloud Rocks”
* Bob Evans, vice president at NASDAQ OMX, will share what is working today with Linux and what would really work in his environment.
* A panel comprised of key Linux kernel developers who will review what’s next in Linux storage and filesystems. Panelists include Ric Wheeler, Manager and Architect of the File System Team at Red Hat; Christoph Hellwig, kernel developer specializing in file systems and virtualization; and James Bottomley, Distinguished Engineer at Novell and Linux Kernel maintainer of the SCSI subsystem, the Linux Voyager port and the 53c700 driver; and Ted Ts'o, North America’s First Kernel Developer and an Engineer at Google working on filesystems and storage.
* Technical Case Studies presented by CitiGroup, Intel, and Morgan Stanley. For example, Intel Senior Application Engineer Evgueny Khartchenko will cover “Latency Spike Linux Kernel Performance Analysis - Uncovering Root Causes.”
* IBM’s cloud computing and open source expert Gerrit Huizenga will host a technical session on public and private clouds.
* Keynote from The Linux Foundation’s Jim Zemlin on how Linux is becoming the fabric for next-generation enterprise computing.
* The unstructured and collaborative Open Spaces Sessions will address Virtualization, HPC/Multicore, Filesystems and Tracing.
==> APLcomp, Palamida, Texas Memory Systems and Zenoss Join <==
The Linux Foundation this month welcomes four new Silver members, including:
* APLcomp is
an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software vendor that primarily
serves the financial services industry. It is using a cloud-based
strategy that includes a Linux-based GUI desktop interface
to provide immediate end user support for new features and
* Palamida is a
provider of software application security solutions exclusively for
open source software. Palamida is participating in The Linux Foundation's Open Compliance Program, among other initiatives.
* Texas Memory Systems. The company designs and builds solid state storage systems for accelerating enterprise applications. Texas Memory Systems will work with The Linux Foundation and the Linux kernel community to help ensure that its SSDs are supported in the mainline kernel. The company’s efforts to upstream the Linux driver for supporting PCI-e SSD drives are part of an industry effort it is leading to ensure all storage manufacturers have support for new storage devices in the mainline Linux kernel.
* Zenoss. Zenoss products enable enterprises to assure IT service delivery and manage operations for business services, networks, and servers across physical, virtual, and cloud-based datacenters. The company uses the open source development model to design and build its products and is joining The Linux Foundation to collaborate with Linux and open source developers and users on requirements for enterprise-level, end-to-end network monitoring==> Individual Members Profiled on Linux.com <==
