Data Center Operators Welcome IBM's OpenPower Initiative

Techworld — Data center providers have welcomed the news that Google, IBM and Nvidia will collaborate to form an open development alliance for datacentres called OpenPower.

The consortium aims to provide advanced server, networking, storage and graphics technology to give more control and flexibility to developers of next-generation, hyperscale and cloud datacentres.

IBM will license designs of the Power microprocessor architecture to other companies in the consortium including Google, as part of an effort to expand use of the architecture and reverse declines in its systems hardware business. Meanwhile, component companies will be able to make hardware that can be integrated, or attached, to the processor.
