OpenPOWER Membership

The goal of the OpenPOWER Foundation is to create an open ecosystem, using POWER architecture, to share expertise, investment and server-class Intellectual property to serve the evolving needs of industry and end users. To accomplish this goal, OpenPOWER has established a tiered membership base to attract and promote industry involvement from all members of its diverse technical ecosystem.
By becoming a member of the OpenPOWER Foundation, entities support the POWER architecture for custom open servers and components for Linux-based data centers as well as the development and proliferation of Open Source Software. OpenPOWER ecosystem partners can optimize the interactions of server building blocks — microprocessors, networking, I/O and other components — to fine tune for their needs to offer greater flexibility and solutions options to industry.

OpenPOWER Ecosystem welcomes Members at all levels
