Doky Becomes Linux Foundation Gold Member

Cloud-based operating system demonstrates commitment to open source

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - December 15, 2016) - The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit advancing professional open source management for mass collaboration, announces Doky has become a Gold member of The Linux Foundation. Doky is an online-based operating system, providing unique features such as a seamless cloud collaboration and storage solution and a quickly growing, fully integrated set of virtual desktop apps. Doky calls its service "fluid computing."

Doky offers a free web and mobile platform that can replace the functions of a local computer, allowing users to access their desktop, data, tabs and more securely from any computer, anywhere, anytime.

Gold membership with The Linux Foundation will enable Doky to leverage The Linux Foundation's experience and expertise to further increase their contributions to open source. The company already contributes to open source projects such as Docker and Node.js, in addition to offering full Linux support for its cloud computing offering.

"It is fantastic that Doky has come aboard The Linux Foundation as a Gold member, one of our highest levels of supporter," said Jim Zemlin, executive director, The Linux Foundation. "Open source continues to encourage and drive innovation, and Doky's offerings are a perfect example of the positive loop created by open source projects leading to new products."

"Open source is at the core of what we do, so becoming a Gold member of The Linux Foundation is one way we are giving back to and supporting the community," said Francesco Tripepi, founder and CEO of Doky. "By further collaborating with open source cloud projects, we hope to improve those projects, and make our own products better in the process. We also realize the power of our platform and impact it can have on one of our passion themes: education. We are in the process of establishing the Doky Foundation which offers a free platform for 'education in need.' We partnered with Pledge1% and will announce more on this topic in 2017."

Gold membership is the second-highest membership tier at The Linux Foundation and demonstrates a significant commitment and investment in open source. Gold members of The Linux Foundation include Citrix, eBay, EMC, Facebook, Google, Hitachi, Mazda, NetApp, Panasonic, PLUMgrid, Renesas, Seagate, SUSE, Symantec, Toshiba, Toyota and Verizon Terremark.
