The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux and collaborative development, today announced the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA) is becoming a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project.
More than 250 companies are members of OVA and will contribute to and guide the Collaborative Project at The Linux Foundation. Governing board members include HP, IBM, Intel Corporation, NetApp and Red Hat, who will be joining other community members this week at KVM Forum in Edinburgh.
"While hosting code and providing open source governance best practices is a big part of what we offer, we're also happy to provide guidance to organizations that want to reduce operating costs, maximize promotional reach and increase participation among diverse stakeholders," said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation. "The Open Virtualization Alliance is a natural addition to our Collaborative Projects and we're very happy to support all virtualization technologies that help advance Linux."
