Which favorite Linux platform has grown beyond providing a slow-moving rebuild of enterprise Linux? Which Linux platform is emerging as a top choice for open source community proofs, development, testing, and production environments?
Since Jan 2015 the CentOS Project has moved far beyond the core Linux rebuild that built the project's reputation. Through an open & transparent community process, special interest groups are building emerging technologies on top of the core Linux platform. Diverse SIG examples include OpenStack (RDO) and the Xen Project, arm64 (AArch64) and cloud providers, and Project Atomic (Vagrant, Docker, & more) and NFV/SDN.
Underlying all this is a community build system cbs.centos.org and a fresh CI infrastructure ci.centos.org, which are used by SIGs to build and test continuously against the entire stack on top of the latest CentOS linux versions.
