Cloudscaling, CloudSigma, Cloudsoft Corporation and DreamHost have announced at LinuxCon Europe 2012 that they are now a part of the Linux Foundation.According to a survey sponsored by The Linux Foundation, 94% of the IT users asked believe that collaboration and a vibrant open source ecosystem are important for cloud adoption.
This is the reason why companies such as Cloudscaling, CloudSigma, Cloudsoft and DreamHost are investing in Linux by joining The Linux Foundation.
“We know that openness in cloud computing is key for ensuring that the freedoms we’ve come to enjoy in the IT market continue,” said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer services at The Linux Foundation.
