Systems of engagement and control in distributed computing environments, are changing Linux system administration strategies. These next-gen applications, potentially based on cloud services at or close to the edge of the network, will be largely container-based microservices that may be deployed to dozens or hundreds of distributed sites. These applications will create opportunities for greater innovation today than at any recent time in the past. This session will outline a vision for Linux in cloud-based distributed computing environments and some of the challenges to deliver on that vision.
