I bet the other Doug Balog (Manager of IBM's Power Division)  is happy about this!
 
Today I'm excited to show off a Google POWER8 server motherboard in the OpenPOWER booth at the Impact 2014 conference in Las Vegas.  We're always looking to deliver the highest quality of service for our users, and so we built this server to port our software stack to POWER (which turned out to be easier than expected, thanks in part to the liitle-endian support in P8). A real server platform is also critical for detailed performance measurements and continuous optimizations, and to integrate and test the ongoing advances that become available through OpenPOWER and the extended OpenPOWER community. (Google, IBM and others formed the OpenPOWER Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing an open ecosystem.

I love the tone in the article. "Teslas already protect you from 110mph collisions with concrete walls. This protects you from matchbook-caliber heat 20 minutes later in case you fall asleep."
