We are thrilled to announce that Hitachi has become the latest Linux Foundation Platinum member, joining existing Platinum members Cisco, Fujitsu, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, NEC, Oracle, Qualcomm and Samsung. Hitachi has been a supporter of The Linux Foundation and Linux since 2000, and was previously a Linux Foundation Gold member. The company decided to upgrade its membership to Platinum in order to further support The Linux Foundation’s work, and open source development in general.
Hitachi is already a member of numerous Linux Foundation projects, such as Automotive Grade Linux, Civil Infrastructure Platform, Cloud Foundry Foundation, Core Infrastructure Initiative, Hyperledger and OpenDaylight. Platinum membership will enable Hitachi to help contribute further to these and other important open source projects.
Linux Foundation Platinum members have demonstrated a sincere dedication to open source by joining at the highest level. As a Platinum member, Hitachi will pay a $500,000 annual membership fee to support The Linux Foundation’s open source projects and initiatives. The company will also now occupy one of 14 seats on the Linux Foundation Board of Directors that are reserved for Platinum members.
