NTT joins OSDL (Open Source Development Labs)
The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), a global consortium dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Linux, announced that Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT), the world's largest telecommunications company, has joined OSDL and will participate in the Lab's Data Center Linux and Carrier Grade Linux working group initiatives.

NTT, a telecommunications giant that oversees a group of more than 430 companies with 200,000 employees in Japan and around the world, is joining OSDL to accelerate the development of Linux for enterprise computing. NTT's research and development arm, NTT research laboratories, will take the lead for the firm on open source software development to strengthen Linux for use as a major platform for enterprise computing.

"NTT Laboratories plans to use open source software in enterprise computing systems and various applications," said Yuji Inoue, senior vice president of NTT. "Through these activities we contribute to open source software communities and the integrity of the information-sharing society. We are joining OSDL, which helps define features needed to improve the reliability and scalability of Linux, to contribute together as NTT group companies in establishing Linux as the computing platform for telecom carrier IT systems."

Linux has also seen growing adoption among enterprises in Japan. Market research firm IDC expects Linux to continue growing at a much faster pace than Windows and UNIX in the server space. According to IDC Enterprise Server Tracker, Linux server shipments and spending will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 40 percent and 31 percent respectively from 2002 to 2007.

"Linux use in enterprise datacenters is growing quickly," said Stuart Cohen, CEO of OSDL. "With the commitment of global companies like NTT to join OSDL and participate in the Lab's working groups, we can bring unmatched resources and technical expertise to accelerate the adoption of Linux in Japan and around the world."
