About Us

OpenSAF is an open source project focused on Service Availability (SA) that goes beyond High Availability (HA) requirements. The goal of the OpenSAF project is to develop middleware based on open and industry standard interfaces for applications requiring uninterrupted 24x7 service. OpenSAF is actively supported by leading companies in the communications and enterprise computing industries and is focused on becoming the premier SA solution for commercial products and converged applications for all markets.

OpenSAF's mission is to:

The OpenSAF Community

The guiding principle of the OpenSAF community is that the code be freely available and open to all. The OpenSAF code is licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License, version 2.1 (LGPL v2.1), a recognized and widely used open source license. Anyone can participate in the OpenSAF projects by downloading the code or contributing to the projects.

The development community drives the evolution and roadmap of OpenSAF. The OpenSAF project is led by the Technical Leadership Council (TLC) whose functions are to facilitate the architectural discussions in the community, plan upcoming releases based on developer commitments, appoint maintainers, ensure that all major contributions are implemented consistent with OpenSAF architecture and determine when the code is ready for general release. No commercial entity may have more than one vote on the TLC at a time, thus ensuring that no one organization can exercise control over the project. Anyone may be invited to join the TLC by demonstrating their commitment to the OpenSAF projects and becoming a recognized leader in the OpenSAF community.
