Updated my thoughts on #PowerLinux little endian for those who still have questions and/or want an update...
by Jeff Scheel, IBM Distinguished Engineer, Linux Technical Strategy Two years ago this month, I published my first blog about the Linux on Power strategic shift from big endian to little endian, titled Just the FAQs about Little Endian , and I still get questions about it today. So, I figured it was time to make updates. The questions listed below are either updated or new. If you do not see your particular question, please read the original doc...

Interested in Device Tree information, then you might want to join the devicetree-spec@vger.kernel.org mailing list. Work has begun to revive the document.

In the future, #OpenPOWER will be providing a document with extensions used on Power Systems, but this document clearly fills a need as a building block.
Hi all, I've cut the first formal release of the devicetree specification. This is the baseline release with a bunch of editorial fixes from the v0.1-pre1 release from a few weeks ago. Now begins the task of bringing new bindings into the spec. You can find the released document here: ...

Happy to see #PowerLinux support in DRBD. Give it try!!!
 
DRBD 9.0.2 just dropped, less than 1 week prior to OpenStack Summit. Coincidence? I think not! Learn more here: www.drbd.org
High availability is a crucial factor in today's world of business. With our revolutionary DRBD replication technology and a clearly defined service offering, we make your life a whole lot easier.

Perhaps one of the most exciting announcements from #OpenPOWER Summit is the collaboration between Rackspace and Google on a POWER9-based OpenCompute Platform that's been named "Zaius".

If you recall, at last year's Summit, Rackspace announced the first Power OCP platform "Barreleye" which taught us all about a transparent fish many of us have never seen.

Note to self, time to Google "Zaius" so that I can learn something new today...
The OpenPower effort to create an alternative to the Xeon architecture in the datacenter just got a whole lot more real now that hyperscaler Google and clo

+Ubuntu on #PowerLinux .  An exciting technology to watch...

Thanks for the excellent blog on the technology, +Breno Leitao!
Ubuntu created an interesting way of distributing binaries called snap, and the snap tool is available in Power since Ubuntu 16.04. Snap is a way to make packages available with their dependencies …

A great blog on how #KVM and #Power are embracing the OpenStack ecosystem. This is a great writeup on our efforts there.

For those who did not make it to the #OpenPOWER Summit last week (like myself), you at least should spend a little time looking at the 50 products unveiled this year.

My personal favorites are the 1U/2S (yes, that's the correct values) system from SuperMicro and the Asetek water cooling for the S822LC servers.

Looks like we were right. Even Intel now admits that Moore's Law no longer applies. Perhaps now people will appreciate the value of #LinuxOnPower in areas like Java where price/performance benefit is well proven.
Intel will slow the pace at which it rolls out new chip-making technology, and is still searching for a successor to silicon transistors.

IT operations who have been riding the Moore's law in order to bring costs down while still accepting more workload will need to start considering alternatives if they want to stay competitive...
