IBM has announced that Samsung Electronics has joined the OpenPower Foundation, an open development alliance based on IBM's Power microprocessor architecture. It is unknown what Samsung’s plans are, but it looks like the company wants to seriously enter the market of servers with advanced software, platforms and, perhaps, microprocessors based on the Power micro-architecture.

The OpenPower foundation, announced in August 2013, intends to build advanced server, networking, storage and acceleration technology aimed at delivering more choice, control and flexibility to developers of next-generation, hyperscale and cloud data centers. The group makes Power hardware and software available to open development for the first time, as well as making Power intellectual property licensable to others, greatly expanding the ecosystem of innovators on the platform.

The OpenPower Foundation is prioritizing four technical areas for development: system software, application software, open server development platform and hardware architecture. Current focus is on software development and preliminary hardware design.

Current members of the OpenPower Foundation are Google, IBM, Mellanox, Nvidia and Tyan.
