Eclipse, OpenAtom Partner Up

September 30, 2021

The Eclipse Foundation, Europe’s biggest open source organization, and the OpenAtom Foundation, China’s first open source foundation are looking to form a collaborative partnership focused on OpenAtom’s OpenHarmony Operating System (OS). The shared goal of this partnership is to jointly build a worldwide, vendor-neutral, and independent open source community, allowing developers, vendors, system integrators to increase their global reach in a single and unified ecosystem.

OpenHarmony is a next-generation, distributed multi-kernel operating system allowing machines and connected objects to work together and share software as well as hardware. The mission of this future collaboration between the Eclipse Foundation and the OpenAtom Foundation will be to further the development and adoption of OpenHarmony. In support of this, the Eclipse Foundation will be establishing additional open source projects and a working group of interested parties to build, deliver and promote an OpenHarmony compatible implementation for the global market.

“The open source model has clearly established itself as the best possible means for global communities to collaborate around a shared, open technology,” said Mike Milinkovich, executive director at the Eclipse Foundation. “Through our collaboration with OpenAtom, we’re hoping to leverage innovation in both Europe and China to create a global solution that everyone can leverage.”

A warm welcome to the collaboration was also expressed by Tao Yang, chairman of the board of directors at the OpenAtom Foundation, “A unified and diversified open source community is crucial to the sustainable development of OpenHarmony. We are looking forward to making history with the Eclipse Foundation and developers around the world.”
