Many of the new members have also joined projects such as Automotive Grade Linux, the Ceph Foundation, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Hyperledger, LF Edge and Zephyr.
Linux Foundation, the non-profit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, has announced the addition of 34 new members – 29 silver members and five associate members.
The organisation members help support development of shared technology resources, while accelerating their own innovation through open source leadership and participation in some of the world’s most successful open source projects including Hyperledger, Kubernetes, Linux, Node.js and ONAP.
Linux Foundation member contributions help provide the infrastructure and resources that enable the world’s largest open collaboration communities.
The organisation claims that since 2018, on average, a new member joins the Linux Foundation every day.
“We are extremely excited to see 34 more companies make the commitment to open source by joining the Linux Foundation,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director, the Linux Foundation.
“These organizations, which represent a huge range of industries from around the globe, will contribute valuable resources and knowledge to an already expansive open source ecosystem,” he added.
New members invest in open source projects
In addition to joining the Linux Foundation, many of the new members have joined projects such as Automotive Grade Linux, the Ceph Foundation, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Hyperledger, LF Edge and Zephyr.
Linux Foundation Silver members contribute to or otherwise support open source communities and projects. Whereas associate members of the Linux Foundation include government agencies and not-for-profit organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to building, sustaining, and using open source technologies.
