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

OpenPOWER Ambassadors Program

Are you (or someone you know) passionate about OpenPOWER? Here is your chance to get involved!

Ambassadors build bridges between the OpenPOWER world and those who have yet to discover it.  Ambassadors are people that can speak with the confidence, enthusiasm, and wisdom to instill the vision of a bold, new, open computing paradigm. You’ll know you’re in the presence of an Ambassador when you see people’s eyes “light up” as they speak the virtues of OpenPOWER.

Do you think you have what it takes? Please send an email to: [email protected].

Introduce yourself. Tell us why you’re passionate about OpenPOWER. Tell us where you’d like to help take the platform.

In return, we’ll send you more information and the full briefing that describes the program’s benefits and obligations. Not sure if you’d be a fit? We’ll happily respond to any questions that will help you decide.

Thanks and we’re looking forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,
The OpenPOWER Ambassador Support Team
