CUBRID Joins Linux Foundation

SAN FRANCISCO, April 7, 2010 – The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, today announced that CUBRID is its newest member.

CUBRID provides an open source database system that is optimized for web services to support mission-critical Internet applications. The company is joining the Linux Foundation to gain access to exclusive networking opportunities and face-to-face collaboration with members of the Linux community.

Linux’ strengths in the enterprise translate into major advantages for supporting web-based businesses. Its ability to enable seamless high-volume transactions and high performance server/client infrastructure are among the reasons CUBRID has become an active member of the Linux development community and the Linux Foundation.

“We are looking forward to collaboration with other Linux Foundation members at events where major Linux stakeholders meet face-to-face. It is this benefit that will help us advance our customers’ web services strategies,” said Byungjoo Chung, CEO of CUBRID.

“Enterprise Linux capabilities are extending to the web as the requirements for high-performance, stable application availability increase,” said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer programs at The Linux Foundation. “This is a natural time for CUBRID to join the Linux Foundation and we look forward to their participation.”

CUBRID will participate in the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit April 14-16, 2010 in San Francisco. To request an invitation to the Summit, please visit: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/component/registrationpro/?func=details&did=26
