OPF Black Background

OpenPOWER Ready™ is a mark used by the OpenPOWER Foundation to enable ecosystem product developers to indicate their product has been shown/demonstrated to meet a minimum set of characteristics and should be interoperable with other OpenPOWER Ready products. The mark attests that a specific component satisfies the criteria defined in a specific version of the OpenPOWER Ready Criteria Document.
