IBM Focuses on Linux in China, Partnered with Red Hat and SUSE

In Beijing this week, IBM has announced that it is further extending its reach into China with the opening of its first Linux innovation center there. The center will initially be focused on Power Systems clients and business partners, and will be located inside IBM's China Systems Center. According to the company, the new center "will make it simpler for software developers to build and deploy new applications for big data, cloud, mobile and social business computing on open technology building blocks using Linux and the latest IBM POWER 7+ processor technology."

This move is one of many so far this year that illustrates how pervasive open source technologies are becoming in China, where attitudes toward open source are friendlier than in many other parts of the world.
