Now there’s the fossa.
Novell has named our new architecture the Fossa Project because of the fossa’s renowned agility. (Ed Murphy, who has two younger children, informed me that the fossas are the bad guys in the movie Madagascar. Since my kids are older, I’ve never seen Madagascar, but I’m thinking they must be like the hyenas in The Lion King. Kinda takes all the fun out of our new mascot.)
The Fossa vision (Novell’s, not the animal’s) does a good job of bringing together Linux, virtualization, data center orchestration, identity (both for users, devices and apps) and collaboration.
