On Monday, July 30th, The Linux Foundation announced that three new companies decided to join its ranks and support the development of the Linux operating system. Representing diverse areas for Linux growth, the three new companies that joined the Linux Foundation are Antelink, Calxeda and Reaktor.

“Companies like Antelink, Calxeda and Reaktor represent the diverse opportunities for Linux and its ongoing growth,” said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer services at The Linux Foundation. “We welcome our newest members today and look forward to their participation in our events, training and Labs and workgroups.”


Let’s now take a quick look at the three new companies in question and see what their representatives had to say about joining The Linux Foundation, nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux.
  • Antelink – Open Source Governance Architects
Founded back in 2009 by open source advocates, this French software vendor specializes in continuous file and component detection for the management and governance of open source software. The solutions that Antelink comes up with enables its customers to reduce software development costs, limit the legal risks linked to the use of open source components, and secure their applications.

Antelink CEO Guillaume Rousseau had the following to say about joining The Linux Foundation:
“The Linux Foundation membership is of great value to us. We’re able to collaborate with peers and share experience and vision for Linux and open source software. We will continue to be an active contributor to the SPDX workgroup, enabling companies and organizations to share license and component information and enable the ongoing widespread use of Linux and open source software.”
Founded back in 2008, this company provides revolutionary efficiency to the data center. In 2010 it received a $48 million investment from ARM and seasons venture capital investors. The servers built on Calxeda’s platform consume but a fraction of the power best-in-class servers need and this makes it possible for data centers to reduce operating expenses and costs.

Karl Freund, vice president of marketing, Calxeda:
“The computing industry is undergoing a massive transformation as big data and cloud computing emerge. Linux is playing the pivotal role in this transformation and is uniquely positioned to help us strike the right balance of maximizing resources and reducing power in the data center. The Linux Foundation hosts online and in-person forums where we can contribute and participate to get the best return on our Linux investment.”
Founded back in 2000 and headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, Reaktor is a software services and consulting company known for getting this done fast and for being fun to work with.

“We see Linux as one of the cornerstones of the connected world of tomorrow. The amount of devices it will power will grow exponentially,” commented Reaktor COO Timo Lukumaa. “Our Linux Foundation membership will connect us to a global community of developers, systems administrators and executives who together are advancing the state-of-the-art for Linux.”
