Extreme Gifts StackStorm to Linux Foundation

Extreme Networks handed over governance of StackStorm, its open source workflow automation platform, to the Linux Foundation.

It will continue as a standalone project under the Linux Foundation’s governance, said Arpit Joshipura, GM for networking, edge, and IoT at the Linux Foundation (LF).

“Given the focus of the community and the requirements from the project regarding the neutral governance provided by LF, the current plan is to host the project under the LF,” Joshipura said in an email to SDxCentral.

StackStorm allows users to automate workflows across data center servers, clouds, and containers using an infrastructure-as-code approach to DevOps. So, for example, after receiving an IT alert in the data center, the open source software kicks in to automate remediation. Other common applications include continuous deployment (CD), ChatOps, and automated security response.

Extreme hands StackStorm workflow automation to Linux group

  • Extreme hands StackStorm workflow automation to Linux group

    Extreme Networks has handed control over StackStorm to The Linux Foundation, giving the open source organization a workflow automation platform that it can add to its other technologies aimed at service providers.

    Extreme said this week it believed the foundation's cadre of open-source developers could speed up StackStorm workflow development and adoption in the tech industry.

    "After careful consideration and consultation with the StackStorm community, we've decided this promising open-source platform will be better served in the open market where it will provide a basic building block for new automation solutions we never thought possible," Eric Broockman, chief technology officer at Extreme, said in a statement.

How GNOME uses Git

“What’s your GitLab?” is one of the first questions I was asked on my first day working for the GNOME Foundation—the nonprofit that supports GNOME projects, including the desktop environment, GTK, and GStreamer. The person was referring to my username on GNOME’s GitLab instance. In my time with GNOME, I’ve been asked for my GitLab a lot. We use GitLab for basically everything. In a typical day, I get several issues and reference bug reports, and I occasionally need to modify a file. I don’t do this in the capacity of being a developer or a sysadmin. I’m involved with the Engagement and Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) teams. I write newsletters for Friends of GNOME and interview contributors to the project. I work on sponsorships for GNOME events. I don’t write code, and I use GitLab every day. Read more
