Linaro is leading collaboration on open source development in the ARM ecosystem. The company is a collaborative engineering organization with over 200 engineers working on consolidating and optimizing open source software for the ARM architecture, including developer tools, the Linux kernel, ARM power management, and other software infrastructure. Linaro is distribution neutral: it wants to provide the best software foundations to everyone by working upstream, and to reduce non-differentiating and costly low level fragmentation. The effectiveness of the Linaro approach has been demonstrated by Linaro’s growing membership, and by Linaro consistently being listed as one of the top five company contributors, worldwide, to Linux kernels since 3.10.
The Linaro Developer Cloud provides ARM64 based OpenStack projects for development teams to develop, build and test their applications. The Developer Cloud supports the global developer ecosystem and is free to the Arm community.
