If you are a believer in Santa Claus and were good like me you got presents again this year. Mine was +CentOS 7.3 for ppc64le! You'll find the ISOs out here...

Good boys and girls learn that Christmas is not always about receiving, but also giving. Perhaps your New Years Resolution for 2017 could include helping the CentOS ppc64le community? Here's a link in case you've misplaced it:

So, the benefits of "open" are that you can follow the design of things like Zaius, the next OCP Power systems...

Feel free to geek-out on the specs if you like hardware.

Leap 42.2 has been released by +openSUSE. Despite not being mentioned on the download page :-( Power is supported. You can find ISOs at http://ftp.opensuse.org/ports/ppc/distribution/leap/42.2-Current/iso/

Interested in migrating applications to Linux on Power? Check out the Software Development Toolkit (SDK) v1.10. It's one of our best kept secrets...
The new IBM SDK for Linux on Power 1.10 is now available.   GET IT NOW! The SDK is a free  Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that contains a set of  powerful tools that speed up the migration and performance analyses of C/C++ applications on POWER. This is what is new in 1.10: Support for ppc64, ppc64le and x86 64/amd64 Updated support for the three supported architectures and its main operating systems.   New Migration Wizar...

I had someone ask about where the documentation is for the ELF version 2, ABI document (little endian). It IS publicly available and you don't need a special login. Here it is...

EXTRA, Extra, read all about it!!! IBM announces updates to the POWER8 processor and 3 new servers.

The new chip integrates NVIDIA's NVLink and POWER8. This chip is available for the first time in 3 new "LC" models from IBM. Of particular interest is a two-socket, 1U (2S1U) server "S821LC" and a new 2S2U for HPC "S822LC for High Performance Computing" which supports 2 P8 sockets with 4 NVLink-attached Tesla P100 GPUs. There is also an updated "S822LC for Big Data".

FWIW, I'm looking for pricing on these new systems and will post more links when I find them...but these servers will continue to compete very well in price-sensitive areas: LINUX IS NO LONGER "TOO EXPENSIVE" ON POWER!!!

IBM has revealed a set of new servers designed to help propel cognitive workloads and to drive greater data center efficiency. Featuring a new chip, the Linux-based lineup can deliver higher levels of performance and greater computing efficiency.

THANKS!  I looked at that and thought something looked odd, but I couldn't articulate it.  I'll pass that along!

A good look forward for #OpenPOWER and +IBM Power Systems by HPC Wire: 2017 "is about scale" according to Ken King, IBM General Manager, OpenPOWER, IBM Systems Group,...
IBM and the OpenPOWER Foundation have done what they said they would – assembling a growing ecosystem and bringing Power-based products to market.

For those people who couldn't make it to #OpenPOWER Europe Summit, here's my favorite presentation from the event. It tells the story of how Kinetica's GPU database is a perfect fit on POWER with the new POWER8NV processors with the embedded NvLink bus and Nvidia GPUs.

This is the next generation of computing available today, out-of-the-box better on Power without any tweaks at 2.5x benefit over x86...
