OFA Industry Alliance Program

OFA Industry Alliance Program

The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) is pleased to announce a new industry alliance program that will enable greater community collaboration with OFA experts and Working Groups to jointly advance fabric technologies. The objective is to facilitate greater synergy among technical organizations working in adjacent areas to advance fabric technologies. The new program provides a platform to incubate and evolve vendor independent open source software for fabrics and drives technical deliverables and promotion to the benefit of the industry as a whole.

As modern data center and Cloud infrastructure performance demands continue to expand, the industry requirements placed on fabrics is also expected grow. We encourage OpenFabrics community members and other organizations to contact the OFA using the form below with their ideas to further develop innovative fabrics technologies and capabilities.
