Network engineering specialist CodiLime has become a member of the Linux Foundation and LF Networking. The company hopes to foster the growth of open-source projects, especially in networking.
Founded in 2000, the Linux Foundation is a non-profit organisation that supports the development of open-source ecosystems by providing financial and intellectual resources, infrastructure and services, and training. The foundation also organizes regular industry-leading events where the members of the open-source community can share experiences and exchange ideas. As a part of the Linux Foundation, LF Networking coordinates networking projects across the entire open networking stack, such as data plane, control plane, orchestration, automation and end-to-end testing.
CodiLime also focuses on network engineering and our goals and technical expertise are convergent with those of the Linux Foundation and LF Networking. This led us to unite our efforts to foster the development of open-source software, especially in networking. Over the last couple of years CodiLime has made significant contributions to Tungsten Fabric, an open source, scalable, multicloud, multistack networking platform, and other open-source technologies like OpenStack and CNI. The company has also presented its solution based on Tungsten Fabric at the Linux Foundation’s Open Networking Summit in Antwerp, Belgium, receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from the community.
Bartosz Górski, CodiLime’s Chief Relationship Officer & Board Member, explained his enthusiasm about the collaboration. “With open-source projects in networking among our goals for 2020, our membership in the Linux Foundation is a logical step forward. We are thrilled about the new possibilities this membership opens up for us and we believe that CodiLime’s technical expertise in network engineering will benefit the entire open-source community,” he said.
Arpit Joshipura, General Manager, Networking, Edge and IOT, at the Linux Foundation, was likewise looking forward to the two organizations kicking off their cooperation. “We are excited to welcome CodiLime as a new member of the Linux Foundation and LF Networking,” Joshipura said. ”CodiLime’s expertise in network engineering will be a valuable asset especially for LF Networking, where we focus on developing collaborative open-source networking solutions. We admire the contribution CodiLime has made to Tungsten Fabric, a project that has been developed under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation. This is a sign of good things to come.”
Founded in 2011, CodiLime specializes in building, developing and integrating SDN & NFV solutions in a single-, multi- or hybrid-cloud environment. Thanks to this expertise, the company has won the confidence of such global industry leaders as Juniper Networks, Nutanix, Nvidia, Mirantis, AT&T, Gigaspaces, Stratoscale, Cloudify, Huawei, IBM and Hitachi. In 2018, CodiLime ranked 49th on the Financial Times 1000: Europe’s 1000 fastest growing companies. In 2020, CodiLime joined the Linux Foundation and LF Networking to foster collaboration on open-source networking stack.
