Three new companies, spurred by the worldwide increase of Linux adoption, decided to maximize their investments in Linux by joining The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux. The three new companies in question are: Hisense Mobile, Solarflare Communications, and Thomas-Krenn.AG.

“Contributing to Linux and participating in the global community of individuals and organizations that build the operating system gives new members an opportunity to maximize their work,” said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer services at The Linux Foundation. “Linux is offering a diverse range of opportunity for companies looking to expand their business and Linux Foundation members can help unlock those opportunities even more effectively through collaboration.”


Here’s a closer look the three new companies that joined The Linux Foundation and what key figures from said companies had to comment on the topic.

Hisense Mobile – Chinese terminal solution supplier founded in 2000.

“The Linux Foundation and its members are working to advance Linux-based mobile technologies and we look forward to contributing to the Code Aurora Forum (CAF) as part of our commitment to that work and to help us innovate faster and deliver new products that meet market demand,” said Li Fu, Vice General Manager, Hisense Mobile Communications.

Solarflare Communications – leading provider of application-intelligent networking I/O products that bridge the gap between applications and the network.

“OpenSource software and Linux is critical to both to Solarflare’s and to our customers’ success. We have supported the maintenance of the Linux ethtool network interface utility for many years and we ship multiple OpenSource Linux based products. Our Linux Foundation membership marks our even deeper commitment to Linux and the OpenSource movement and will simplify our development efforts,” said Bruce Tolley, Vice President of Solutions and Outbound Marketing, Solarflare.

Thomas-Krenn.AG - German manufacturer of servers, virtualization solutions, backup solutions for virtual environments and virtualization-consulting solutions.

“The demand for Linux is still rapidly growing in the enterprise. Research firms report it, and it’s being proven in our customer deployments every day. We want to contribute to this rising platform and be a part of that growth and collaboration,” said Christoph Maier, CEOThomas-Krenn.AG. “By joining The Linux Foundation, we will more greatly reap the benefits of Linux while delivering more value to our customers and the community.”
