Last year we celebrated 25 years of Linux (oh, and by the way SUSE is also turning 25 in 2017). The IT and industry landscapes have changed significantly during the last two decades: open source and Linux in particular have been extensively adopted across all industries, which in turn has also inspired many new open source projects to start and develop.

Today, one of the challenges enterprises face to adopt open source technologies, besides test, set-up, security and long term support, is the integration of these different open source projects. Now more than ever, communities and companies have to work together across projects to facilitate this integration.

Another important change compared to 1991 is that infrastructure and development have come a lot closer together. With DevOps principles and technologies like containers, not only do we have infrastructure- and development-related open source projects, but blurring borders and tight coupling between them.

As an example, today SUSE will announce the release of a new product, rooted in communities and in partnerships, at such a cross-roads of open source software-defined infrastructure and cloud native development.
