The educational experts would soon benefit from the International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) Corporation's modern digital service. IBM news reported that the company has launched a free OpenPOWER-based cloud service known as SuperVessel. The new technology is pioneered to let developers, professors, and universities to become a part of the highly advanced ecosystem. It is expected that the new initiative of the company would help develop cloud applications.

The launch of the service informs about the corporate giant's efforts to serve developers.

IBM System Labs and IBM Research in Beijing develop the latest feature.

The OpenStack technology and other open source technologies would be used to support the new platform. SuperVessel is not new for the Chinese people, as China-based Chongqing has already employed it to develop a transport management application that it hopes would transform the industry, as reported by IBM Breaking news.

OpenPOWER Foundation was developed in 2013 and a number of businesses have played their role in the establishment of this entity, including Google, Tyan, Mellanox, Nvidia, and IBM.

Industry sources stated that IBM vice president of Power ecosystem and strategy, Terri Virnig, has stated that the new service has contributed to the development of OpenPOWER and Open technology.
