Member companies may use POWER for custom open servers and components for Linux based cloud data centers as well as optimizing Linux software on POWER.

OpenPOWER Mission Statement

The goal of the OpenPOWER Foundation is to create an open ecosystem, using the POWER Architecture to share expertise, investment, and server-class intellectual property to serve the evolving needs of customers and industry.
