Changing the way automotive manufacturers build software

Automotive Grade Linux, with more than 100 members, is working to develop a common platform that can serve as the de facto industry standard. Sharing an open platform allows for code reuse and a more efficient development process as developers and suppliers can build once and have a product work for multiple OEMs. This ultimately reduces development costs, decreases time-to-market for new products and reduces fragmentation across the industry.

Reducing the cost and complexity of getting things done in the real world

Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration, hosted by The Linux Foundation, including leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and Technology. Only an Open Source, collaborative software development approach can ensure the transparency, longevity, interoperability and support required to bring blockchain technologies forward to mainstream commercial adoption. That is what Hyperledger is about – communities of software developers building blockchain frameworks and platforms.

Revolutionizing networks for 4B mobile subscribers

The networking industry is at a significant turning point as network operators spanning telecommunications, cable, enterprise, cloud, and the research community work to redefine the network architecture. ONAP is a comprehensive platform for real-time, policy-driven orchestration and automation of physical and and virtual network functions that will enable software, network, IT and cloud providers and developers to rapidly create new services.

Reducing infrastructure from monolithic to scalable, flexible, and run anywhere

Kubernetes is an open-source platform for automating deployment, scaling, and operations of application containers across clusters of hosts, providing container-centric infrastructure. At a minimum, Kubernetes can schedule and run application containers on clusters of physical or virtual machines. However, Kubernetes also allows developers to ‘cut the cord’ to physical and virtual machines, moving from a host-centric infrastructure to a container-centric infrastructure, which provides the full advantages and benefits inherent to containers. Kubernetes provides the infrastructure to build a truly container-centric development environment.

In the same way that Linus Torvalds has been instrumental in retooling the production lines of the modern economy as Henry Ford was 100 years ago, we strive to support the creation of technologies and ecosystems that will have a lasting global impact. There are plenty of ways to engage with us, let’s get started.
