CGL is of primary interest to telecommunication companies and other real-time service needs.

High Availability Working Group - The latest working group from the Linux Foundation is for high availability. "The Working Group will bring together projects and stakeholders to collaboratively define the open source HA software stack and prioritize features based on input from developers, vendors, and customers. This work will inform support for today’s most sophisticated enterprises that are deploying Linux for mission-critical workloads."
