For all you #PowerKVM users, you'll want this.  For those who are still considering giving it a try, we're ready when you are! 

PowerKVM is the simplest way to exploit Power Systems and integrate them into your #OpenStack -based infrastructure.  You know longer need an HMC, a VIOS, or IVM to run VMs on a Power box.  How much simpler could it be?
A new update for the 2.1 release stream of IBM PowerKVM is now available. It can be downloaded from Fix Central via the following link: http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?parent=Virtualization%2Bsoftware&product=ibm/Other+software/PowerKVM&release=2.1.1.0&platform=All&function=all This is the first release to support running RHEL 7.1 guest virtual machines. Additionally this release provides fixes for over 70 b...

One day I hope to see powernv FreeBSD too. It'd be great to have more than just Linux being able to run bare metal.

A great discussion thread that Aaron Sullivan from +Rackspace pointed out to us.  It demonstrates how well #PowerLinux run applications like Java. 

What I appreciate about it is that this is not IBM Marketing collateral, it's simply users documenting what they can do...Enjoy!!!
Quick benchmark, compared to this one Intel Xeon E5-1620v2 4c/8t 3,7 GHz+/3,9 GHz+ [0]. #Intel. sysbench --test=cpu --cpu-max-prime=100000 --num-threads=8 run execution time (avg/stddev): 29.8777/0.01. #Power8. sysbench --test=cpu --cpu-max-prime=100000 run --num-threads=8 execution time ...

I'd heard there was some good Redis on #PowerLInux information out there.  This video explains the new IBM Data Engine for NoSQL built around Redis.  Holler if you have questions!

Interested in running RHEV-M with #PowerKVM?  Watch this demo... 

What it proves is that open source is the true enabler of defacto APIs.  This is why if you are thinking about Linux as only an x86 platform, you are selling yourself short.  It's never been cheaper to exploit Power for your workloads...

I'm a slight bit skeptical on this...wait and see for me...

There's a side of me that says it's in Intel's best interest to preserve the myth that Moore's Law will continue.  History will tell.  At some point it has to end.  Life is physics!
Eventually, the conventional ways of manufacturing silicon chips will run out of steam. According to Intel researchers speaking at the ISSCC conference this week, however, we still have headroom.

Another great example of the benefits of #PowerLinux from a mailing list -- erlang-questions, this time.  So, if you're interested in erlang, take a look...

Yup, the ecosystem continues to grow!!!  This definitely fills a void in the form factors that traditional IBM Power has not addressed.

A great writeup from HPCWire on the GM of #OpenPOWER at IBM, Ken King.  He's a "person to watch" in 2015, and for good reasons!  ;-)
With 2015 underway, there are some stars on the rise in high performance computing. Every year, HPCwire’s People to Watch offers our readers a look at some
