In a bid to reinvigorate its POWER processor architecture,IBM this week announced a new development alliance called the OpenPOWER Consortium, with Google, Mellanox, NVIDIA and Tyan as initial members. Battling a diminishing server market overall, on top of competition from the Open Compute Project and other industry initiatives, IBM hopes that OpenPOWER will build advanced server, networking, storage and GPU-acceleration technology on the POWER platform. The consortium makes POWER IP licensable to others and for the first time will make POWER hardware and software available to open development.
