Linux and open source

The ADL is home to a highly skilled Linux and open source development team based in Canberra, which forms part of IBM’s global Linux Technology Center (LTC).

Boasting a wealth of technical excellence, the team contributes to and collaborates with a variety of open source project teams both within and outside of IBM, and regularly presents papers at major international Linux symposiums. They also work with major Linux distributors to deploy Linux on IBM OpenPOWER.

Recently, the team has been working with the OpenPOWER Consortium (US) – an open development alliance based on IBM's POWER microprocessor architecture. Partnering with industry players to build advanced server, networking, storage and GPU acceleration technology, they’re helping to develop the key technologies underpinning the OpenPOWER Consortium – such as open source firmware, Linux-based hardware exerciser tools, KVM and OpenStack.

And when collaborating with a global community of software developers and cloud computing technologists, the team delivers software architecture, compute and storage expertise for open source development.
