The Linux Foundation is a non-profit technology consortium founded in 2000 as a merger between Open Source Development Labs and the Free Standards Group to standardize Linux, support its growth, and promote its commercial adoption.
The Linux Foundation is dedicated to building sustainable ecosystems around open source projects to accelerate technology development and commercial adoption. It is the home of Linux creator Linus Torvalds and lead maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman, and provides a neutral home where Linux kernel development can be protected and accelerated for years to come.
Cloud native technologies empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments such as public, private, and hybrid clouds. Containers, service meshes, microservices, immutable infrastructure, and declarative APIs exemplify this approach.
These techniques enable loosely coupled systems that are resilient, manageable, and observable. Combined with robust automation, they allow engineers to make high-impact changes frequently and predictably with minimal toil.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation seeks to drive adoption of this paradigm by fostering and sustaining an ecosystem of open source, vendor-neutral projects. They democratize state-of-the-art patterns to make these innovations accessible for everyone.
SONiC is an open source network operating system based on Linux that runs on switches from multiple vendors and ASICs. SONiC offers a full-suite of network functionality, like BGP and RDMA, that has been production-hardened in the data centers of some of the largest cloud-service providers. It offers teams the flexibility to create the network solutions they need while leveraging the collective strength of a large ecosystem and community.
FRRouting (FRR) is an IP routing protocol suite for Linux and Unix platforms which
includes protocol daemons for BGP, IS-IS, LDP, OSPF, PIM, and RIP.
FRR has its roots in the Quagga project. In fact, it was started by many
long-time Quagga developers who combined their efforts to improve on
Quagga’s well-established foundation in order to create the best routing
protocol stack available. We invite you to participate in the FRRouting
community and help shape the future of networking.
switchdev is an infrastructure in the Linux kernel which facilitates the offloading of the kernel’s forwarding plane to capable ASICs.
switchdev allows users and developers to utilize current ASICs by using a standardized and well-known API exposed by the Linux kernel instead of relying on proprietary APIs implemented in binary user space blobs.
