[Phoronix] Video: 100+ Daily Performance Tests For Clear Linux + Intel's Other Full-Stack Optimizations
A month ago at the Open-Source Summit Europe 2019 in Lyon, France, Intel's Kelly Hammond who serves as the company's Senior Director of System Platform Software talked up their open-source contributions with a particular emphasis on performance. The video from that keynote was recently published for those curious about Intel's open-source work in the name of performance, including Clear Linux.
Kelly talked up their open-source contributions across the board from the Linux kernel to the other areas of the stack but also with their emphasis on performance. As part of that, she also made some interesting remarks on Clear Linux and their automated development model for this performance-optimized rolling-release distribution. She covered how they manage 5,000+ packages yet are largely automated-driven model and carry out more than 100 performance tests per day in validating each release.
