Open Source Lab Signs Up NTT Data Subsidiary.
Formed in 2000, the OSDL has data centers in Portland, Oregon and Yokohama, Japan, and is one of the main centers of focus for Linux development. The non-profit organization hosts the Data Center Linux and Carrier Grade Linux projects.
The non-profit organization is also home to Linux creator Linus Torvalds after he joined the group in June to give Linux his full attention, and sponsors the work of Linux kernel maintainer Andrew Morton.
Tokyo, Japan-based NTT Data Intellilink has been a champion of open source software solutions, according to OSDL, and has expertise in open source and Linux-based system feature and performance tuning, deployment, office automation, database implementation, web serving, and middleware.
NTT Data Intellilink said that it intended to participate in the Carrier Grade Linux and Data Center Linux projects and had joined the OSDL because it "provides a unique bridge between users, vendors and open source communities," according to Dr Kou Miyake, president and CEO.
