New IBM Center In Beijing To Speed Linux Applications On Power Systems

IBM Heritage and Leadership in Open Source Computing



IBM has participated in a wide range of open source projects since 1999, and today this includes OpenStack, Hadoop and KVM in addition to Linux, Eclipse and Apache. Over 600 IBM programmers and engineers are contributing to open source as part of the community, and this includes several dozen experts in China working on projects such as KVM. In November 2012, IBM opened its first KVM Center of Excellence in Beijing. The center, also located at the IBM China System Center, promotes KVM-based solutions from IBM and its partners, and to help customers and business partners explore and adopt open virtualization and open cloud strategies. The center was established as the first KVM Center worldwide because of the rapid adoption of virtualization and cloud computing in China.

" China is one of the fastest growing countries to adopt open source technologies like Linux - and Power Systems is often the best platform for Linux because of its advanced performance, security and virtualization," said Colin Parris, IBM Power Systems General Manager. "The center brings together the Linux expertise of Red Hat and SUSE, along with IBM's leading technical and business experts for Power Systems to provide clients and partners the essential open source building blocks for high-performance, enterprise level, data intensive workloads."
