Who Will Be Collaborating On What And When
Each year, the Linux Foundation is responsible for putting on some of the biggest names of the conference season. LinuxCon, the Kernel and End-User Summits, the Linux Plumbers Conference — they all have the Foundation behind them. The next up on the schedule is the Collaboration Summit, and as of last week, attendees can now check the details on the Summit's who, what, where, and when.
The 2010 Collaboration Summit will convene in San Francisco next month from the 14th to the 16th for its fourth-annual session. Attendees will hear from speakers including Andrew Morton, Jon Corbet, PostgreSQL's Josh Berkus, James Bottomley of Novell, and Google's Chris DiBona, among many, many more.
The conference schedule, released last week, has a variety of sessions, from panels and presentations to workgroups, and of course, the obligatory keynotes. A short sampling of the offerings include:
- The Linux Kernel: What's Next (Panel)
- FOSSBazaar Workgroup
- High Performance Computing
- Linux Standard Base Workgroup
- Why Your Life Might Depend on Your Code
- Does Open Source Mean Open Cloud? (Panel)
Like many of the Foundation's events — including the Kernel Summit and End User Summit — the Collaboration Summit is an invitation-only event. Prospective attendees can request an invitation from the conference site, though space is limited. Once an invitation is in hand, there is no fee for registering for the conference. A "free" invite is provided to those paying the $1,200 registration fee for the Linux Performance Tuning training that will be co-located with the conference.

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
