Linux Foundation Unveils Plans for Upcoming Summit
The Linux Foundation — the not-for-profit that keeps Linus in keyboards, and most recently, has been looking to glam things up a bit — earlier this month provided a first glimpse into its plans for the 2009 Collaboration Summit, to be held April 8-10 in San Francisco.
So, what's on the agenda? The LF has confirmed a long list of roundtable panels and keynote addresses, including:
- The Linux Kernel: What's Next A roundtable with Andrew Morton, Ted Ts'o, Jon Corbet, Keith Packard, and Greg Kroah-Hartmann.
- Why Can't We All Just Get Along: Linux, Microsoft and Sun A panel including Jim Zemlin of The Linux Foundation, Ian Murdock of Sun Microsystems, and Sam Ramji of Microsoft.
- Moblin 2 - State of the Union A keynote and demo by Imad Sousou, Director of Intel's Open Source Technology Center.
- Measuring Community Contributions A community roundtable/participation panel with Ubuntu Community Manager Jono Bacon, OpenSuse Community Manager Joe Brockmeier, IBM Vice President of Open Systems Development Dan Frye, and kernel developer James Bottomley.
- An as-yet untitled keynote from Oracle's Edward Screven, Chief Corporate Architect.
Among the summit's other events will be sessions on power management, joint collaboration, high performance computing, file systems, tracing/systems management, and kernel quality, among others. There will also be a face-to-face meeting of the Linux Standards Base, updates from the Linux Driver Project, a two-day Moblin "track" covering various subjects related to the platform, Linux ISV Summit, and a number of other meetings and events which are still in the works. Updates to the agenda can be found on the LF's Collaboration Summit site.
The annual summit, now in it's third year, is an opportunity for "the brightest minds in Linux, including core kernel developers, distribution maintainers, ISVs, end users, system vendors and other community organizations" to gather and promotes cross-community collaboration on the Linux issues deemed most pressing. Unlike most events in the Open Source world, the Collaboration Summit is an invitation-only event — those interested in participating are encouraged to submit a registration through the LF's registration page. Those attending the CELF Embedded Linux Conference (open registration) and the Linux Storage & Filesystems Workshop (invitation-only) are automatically included in the Collaboration Summit.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
