While browsing the web recently I was interested to find an article (Carrier Grade Linux moves beyond telecoms into data centers, virtualization) featuring an interview with Bill Weinberg of the OSDL.
In the article Weinberg outlines his view that Carrier Grade Linux has
matured to a point where it’s pushing out from it’s traditional
heartland of management blades and shelf controllers in telecoms
infrastructure equipment. CGL is now finding new uses in new markets
(for example Aerospace and Medical equipment) as well as new uses in
its traditional market of telecoms equipment (such as managed nodes
rather than management blades).
So why all this interest in Carrier Grade Linux?
