D-Link, the well known manufacturer of network equipment, decided to join The Linux Foundation. Three other companies, Axis Communications, O.S. Systems and Perforce, also decided to join the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux.

“Linux powers a significant segment of today’s networking infrastructure, so it’s a natural step for us to become a member of The Linux Foundation,” said Jocelyn Chung, VP of Global Marketing, D-Link. “We believe that collaboration with companies and developers in this space and sharing best practices can enhance our own leadership in integrated, end-to-end solutions for surveillance, software, switching, and storage, as well as next-generation cloud technologies.”


With the aim of collaborating on Linux development and maximizing investments in collaborative development, four new companies decided to join the ranks of Linux Foundation members. These 4 new companies are D-Link, global leader in connectivity, Axis Communications, market leader in network cameras and other IP networking solutions, O.S Systems, company that offers advanced solutions in information security, connectivity, high availability and clustering, and Perforce, company that powers the world's most demanding development environments.

“Linux and the collaborative development model can provide a blueprint for companies that want to maximize open source best practices and their investments in the operating system,” said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer services at The Linux Foundation. “We’re looking forward to the work we can do with these new members to advance Linux and their businesses.”

As The Linux Foundation explained, these four companies want to maximize their investment in Linux and the collaborative development model. By coming members of The Linux Foundation the four can accelerate software development and build more innovative products faster. And by closely collaborating with The Linux Foundation they can broaden opportunities to expand their businesses with Linux.

“The Linux Foundation hosts important collaboration projects across industries,” said Otavio Salvador, CTO, O.S. Systems. “Its work in high performance and availability, the cloud, and consumer electronics applies to what’s happening in automotive. It’s the beauty of the collaborative development model, and we’re looking forward to deepening our relationships and collaboration in this area, making O.S. Systems the right partner for new critical projects.”
