The IBM Linux Technology Center (LTC) is an organization focused on development for the Linux kernel and related open-source software projects. In 1999, IBM created the LTC to combine its software developers interested in Linux and other open-source software into a single organization. Much of the LTC's early effort was focused on making "all of its server platforms Linux friendly."[1] The LTC collaborated with the Linux community to make Linux run optimally on processor architectures such as x86, mainframe, and Power. In recent years, the focus of the LTC has expanded to include several other open source initiatives. Details[edit] Developers in the LTC contribute to various open-source projects such as:

Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) on x86 and Power systems, including Kimchi[2] Apache Hadoop OpenStack OpenPower Consortium[3] GNU toolchain Open source standards

LTC is a worldwide team with main locations in Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, India, Israel, and the United States. References[edit]
