The Linux Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux.  Today The Linux Foundation announced The Planet as its newest member. The Planet is a global leader in IT hosting and will participate in community initiatives and projects that support enterprise Linux.  The Planet is also growing in the cloud hosting arena to compete with larger IT cloud providers such as Rackspace and Amazon Ec2.

“Our new Server Cloud, which is in beta with more than 500 customers, has been developed on the KVM hypervisor included in the Linux kernel,” said Duke Skarda, vice president of IT and Software Development for The Planet. “KVM is the future of Linux-based server virtualization. As we continue to evolve and enhance the platform, our goal is to access the Linux development community to gain vision and insights on emerging technologies. More than 80 percent of our 20,000 customers and partners rely on Linux platforms to manage their hosting operations, so our membership directly supports their work.”
