Linux: Designed for the Cloud


Linux: Designed for the Cloud

Linux is the natural technology for enabling cloud computing: it’s modular, it’s performant, it’s power efficient, it scales, it’s open source, and it’s ubiquitous. And, as the platform upon which the largest cloud infrastructures, in the world have been built, Linux – unlike other available operating systems – has little left to prove as a component of cloud infrastructures be they public or private. “Every time you use Google, you’re using a machine running the Linux kernel,” as Google’s Chris DiBona has said.
