"_OpenPOWER architecture provides us the flexibility, stability, and software compatibility essential in delivering next generation self-sovereign silicon from the edge to the DC. We've joined the OpenPOWER foundation, because Solid Silicon's chips are built on OpenPOWER architecture and we believe in the benefits of open solutions and the communities building them_", says [Todd Rooke](https://www.linkedin.com/in/toddrooke/), CEO and Founder.
"_At a fundamental level, akin to public cryptography, the entire OpenPOWER architecture and standard are open, auditable, and completely verifiable. With Solid Silicon's firmware, software, and tools also being fully open source, our customers benefit immensely by deploying self-sovereign silicon solutions from the edge to the data center. We are thrilled to partner with the OpenPOWER Foundation to foster and expand this incredible developer community_", says [Todd Rooke](https://www.linkedin.com/in/toddrooke/), CEO and Founder.
