Ellexus joins the OpenPOWER foundation

Ellexus has joined the OpenPOWER foundation, an open development community based on the POWER microprocessor architecture.

The focus of the foundation is to build advanced server, networking, storage and acceleration technology as well as industry leading open source software aimed at delivering more choice, control and flexibility to developers of next-generation, hyperscale and cloud data centers. It has more than 300 members, including the likes of IBM, Google and Redhat.

There are various work groups that Ellexus is interested in joining, including those surrounding storage architecture and I/O performance. We’ll report back soon on our involvement.
