Linux underpins the entirety of the Internet and shapes the foundation of the technology industry. With key open source initiatives like Cloud Foundry Foundation, Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Xen Project, and Open Container Initiative housed at The Linux Foundation, Linux leads the technology charge for the next generation: cloud. Our complementary cloud and container projects are together building the future of technology infrastructure for business. Linux Foundation networking projects extend the power of the cloud to the edge, enabling the creation of powerful new platforms such as Industrial Internet of Things.
