Data, file systems and storage are at the heart of today’s computing environment, with innovation needed to accommodate the need for more data storage capability, at faster speeds with today’s newest hardware. Linux has been at the center of these advances with its widespread use in cloud computing, big data and other data-intensive computing workloads. The ongoing expansion of these cloud services, distributed file storage, and IT automation is increasing the need for data storage systems that are robust, accessible, and scalable. Additionally, Hardware vendors are beginning to recognize the importance of Linux with many working directly in the Linux community to develop cutting-edge storage hardware, helping transform Linux into a leader in the storage industry.
The Linux Foundation is launching a new conference called Vault to bring together the leading developers in file systems and storage in the Linux kernel with related projects to forge a path to continued innovation and education. By being co-located with the invite-only and exclusive Linux File System and Storage Summit, Vault will tap into the expertise of the developers leading these innovations while offering a general technical conference that is open to everyone, creating a place where companies on the leading edge can network with users and developers to advance computing. Companies and projects on the leading edge of Linux Storage and file systems will be represented.
