Igniting Sparks of Innovation

Intel's involvement with Open Source runs deep.

Helping Establish Linux* Globally

Through a diverse range of open source projects, Intel works to enhance Linux* performance, stability, reliability, and power efficiency across the computing continuum.

Intel is a leading contributor to the Linux* kernel. We employ thousands of software developers, many of them devoted to optimizing open source code for our hardware.


Linux* Kernel Highlight 1

High Availability Linux* Architecture for Mission Critical Workloads training available from The Linux* Foundation

Intel has teamed up with the Linux* Foundation for this four-day, hands-on training course that provides the knowledge and skills to successfully engineer, provision, maintain, and administer high-availability clusters to support mission-critical workloads. By leveraging the unique talent and experience from some of the largest Linux* deployments in the world, the Linux* Foundation built this course as a reference for IT architects and managers looking to engineer, provision, design, deploy and maintain highly available enterprise IT environments.

Running Mission-Critical Workloads on Enterprise Linux* x86 Servers

This IDC white paper, sponsored by Intel, examines the growth of mission-critical workloads being hosted on x86 servers based on the Intel® Xeon® E7 series of processors running enterprise Linux* operating systems. It looks at the way in which x86 servers are taking on more demanding workloads and discusses IDC Workloads data that shows the growth of mission-critical business processing workloads on enterprise Linux* platforms.
