Mandriva Joins OW2 to Spur Enterprise Innovation in the Open Source Community

Filed under
MDV

OW2, the international open source community for infrastructure software, and Mandriva, the company that gave the world one of the most popular Linux distributions, announce today that Mandriva has joined the OW2 Consortium as a Corporate Member to leverage its global community and outreach as Mandriva embarks on a renewed enterprise strategy.

Mandriva has recently gone through a reorganization and is currently redefining its strategy. While the well-known Mandriva Linux operating system is being returned to the open source community via a non-profit foundation called the Mandriva Linux Foundation, the company is repositioning its commercial operations on the corporate market including enterprises, government organizations and educational institutions. It provides tools that are simple to use and install while offering an advanced open source solution to manage heterogeneous IT infrastructure. As a natural complement to this strategic shift, Mandriva SA is looking to the OW2 Consortium as a support for the redeployment of its international strategy specifically in Europe and Brazil.
