  15. 15. 15 Maximum Performance, Minimum Change From highly parallelized languages to memory-intensive apps, running the same code on POWER can dramatically increase performance – and with all major Linux distros supported, switching is easy. Accelerate Beyond Limits POWER’s deeply integrated accelerator support means code can push beyond the limits of what’s possible with standard processors. Work Less, Do More With better performance and scale, you can spend less time building/testing/optimizing and more time developing the next new thing. Rule the Stack – No black boxes. With OpenPOWER’s fully open architecture, developers rule the stack – hardware, firmware, and software are open and ready for optimization. POWER8: Designed for Big Data SMT8 – 64+ threads per CPU Massive memory bandwidth & workspace Why Develop on OpenPOWER?
  16. 16. 16 Introducing OpenPOWER Ready • Products / solutions may display badge • Participants request to use it! • Encourage product usage in ecosystem • Compatibility • Not Certification or Compliance • OpenPOWER Ready™ List Criteria • The OpenPOWER Ready criteria are published by the OpenPOWER Foundation. • Establishing an OpenPOWER Ready Workgroup. • Companies are encouraged to join the OpenPOWER Foundation and the OpenPOWER Ready Workgroup to stay current on proposed updates to the criteria as the definition and criteria are evolved.
