According to a recent press release, “At the inaugural OpenPOWER European Summit, the OpenPOWER Foundation made a series of announcements today detailing the rapid growth, adoption and support of OpenPOWER across the continent. Members announced: a series of European-based OpenPOWER technology implementations advancing corporate innovation and driving important world research including the Human Brain Project; a new set of developer resources, including an OpenPOWER developer cloud for European organizations and students; and new OpenPOWER-based solutions designed to improve performance for modern, new workloads including artificial intelligence, deep learning, accelerated analytics and high performance computing.”
The release goes on, “The OpenPOWER Foundation is a global technology development community with more than 270 members worldwide supporting new product design, development and implementation on top of the high performing, open POWER processor. Many of the OpenPOWER-based technologies developed by OpenPOWER members in Europe are being used to help meet the unique needs of corporations running some of the largest data centers in the world and by researchers exploring high performance computing solutions to help solve some of the world’s greatest challenges.”
Calista Redmond, President of the OpenPOWER Foundation, commented, “Data growth in virtually every industry is forcing companies and organizations to change the way they consume, innovate around and manage IT infrastructure… Commodity platforms are proving ineffective when it comes to ingesting and making sense of the 2.5 billion GBs of data being created daily. With today’s announcements by our European members, the OpenPOWER Foundation expands its reach, bringing open source, high performing, flexible and scalable solutions to organizations worldwide.”
