By Yannick Giraud for BloombergNews, July 4, 2017 12:22:10Software for managing a network of servers, routers, routers and other equipment used for large-scale IT projects is getting more powerful and more reliable as more companies adopt cloud-based solutions, said David O’Connor, CEO of the Linux Foundation.
In his keynote presentation at the Linux Security Summit in San Francisco, O’Connell said companies should not expect cloud-driven solutions to be perfect, but rather that they will improve the quality of their systems and the efficiency of their networks.
“It’s not going to be a one-time fix,” he said.
“It’s going to take a lot of time to get the performance and scalability of those systems to where it needs to be.”
The Linux Foundation has been pushing the technology behind virtualization to enterprises, and O’Conners speech focused on cloud-powered solutions.
He said companies are increasingly using cloud-enabled virtualization and networking tools to manage large-volume infrastructure.
Virtualization technologies are typically deployed on servers, which are often connected to other servers and routers.
The network of routers and switches are the most common, and are often built with a wide range of hardware and software options.
But O’Connors keynote presentation, which covered the use of virtualization on Linux servers, showed the Linux kernel is being used for virtualization, as is the virtualization-based virtualization platform for Linux.
The Linux kernel uses a variety of virtualizations to manage virtual machines, and is used by a wide variety of Linux-based operating systems.
For example, O`Conners talk focused on Linux’s VirtualBox and VirtualBox-based guest operating systems that can be run from a remote machine or virtual machine host.
These are the technologies that are used to manage Linux containers, a feature that can help virtual machines be managed efficiently.
O’Brien also talked about how the Linux Kernel is the kernel of Linux, and how it is used to communicate with other operating systems on the network.
O’Conner said the Linux ecosystem is evolving as more organizations adopt Linux.
He mentioned that the Linux community is also developing open source code to help developers better understand the Linux codebase.
He also said that while he was not talking about cloud services or cloud-hosted applications, he did mention that there are some cloud-centric tools.
O`Connor said the tools that were used in the Linux Conference have not yet been widely adopted by companies.
O`Conner noted that virtualization technologies have become a powerful tool in the cloud, but it is not the only way to make virtual machines manage infrastructure.
He said enterprises are using Linux as a way to manage infrastructure, but that cloud services have evolved to be much more efficient.
The cloud services can be used for managing virtual machines and containers, as well as for managing infrastructure services, such as network monitoring, and for other workflows.
