The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), a global consortium dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Linux, today announced that NEC Soft Ltd., one of Japan's leading software development and systems integration firms, has joined OSDL and will participate in the Lab's Data Center Linux and Carrier Grade Linux working group initiatives.

According to the OSDL, NEC Soft offers a wide variety of technical services in operating systems technology, software development, and systems integration. NEC Soft established a Linux Support Center in 1999 to offer services including systems integration and support of Linux packaged products, original appliance server products and Linux operating solutions.

Takaaki Seki, President of NEC Soft, Ltd., said, “NEC Soft, Ltd. has led the NEC group's Linux business solutions by focusing on the effectiveness of open source technology and the creation of flexible and optimum systems solutions. The company has also actively participated in collaborative projects in the public and private sectors and academia that use open source technology.”

“The momentum behind Linux in Japan has attracted some important companies to OSDL,” said Stuart Cohen, CEO of OSDL. “We're delighted to have NEC Soft join the Lab and participate in our Data Center Linux and Carrier Grade Linux working groups.”
