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

The #OCP platform for #PowerLinux continues to generate excitement. Here's an update from OCP Summit. I'm getting excited about OpenPOWER Summit to hear about all the advances in the past year.

Will you be at OpenPOWER Summit? Do you know the way to San Jose?
At Open Compute Summit, OpenPOWER members share their Barreleye roadmap plans.

Any CFD folks out there looking for a good platform for OpenFoam? Take a testdrive on POWER8...

A great blog post for our "inner geeks"...

It reminds me of the time my Algebra teacher stated this:
If 1/9 == 0.11111111 (repeating)
and 2/9 == 0.22222222 (repeating)
and so on up to 8/8 == 0.8888888 (repeating),
then does 9/9 == 0.99999999 (repeating) or does it equal 1?

That sure was a lively debate for a math class. Thanks, Mr. Keaney, for seeding my "inner geek".

In this U.S. Political season, I couldn't resist posting this little bit of "geek fun"...
It's time to elect the first artificial intelligence into office.

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...

Anyone wanting to play with containers (Docker) on #PowerKVM? Check out the Tech Preview packages and roll out the latest "PowerKVM: Configuration and Use" Redbook. Section 1.4 on page 22 (as numbered) should serve as a good starting point.

Would love your thoughts and/or feedback...

If you are InterConnect this week OR if you are interested in some cool solutions on #LinuxOnPower, you might want to check out the link and vote on your favorite solution (see the "You decide" section)...

Even if you don't vote, the projects on Tumblr (http://powersystemsuniversitychallenge.tumblr.com/) are pretty cool!!!

For those of you who've asked for a Power workstation, this looks like a great option with #POWER8 and #OpenPOWER firmware. Suggested starting price around $3k USD.

If interested, I'm sure they'd appreciate your support...
Talos™ Secure Workstation Talos™ brings the proven performance and security of POWER8 to the desktop with the world's first OpenPOWER ATX workstation board. Talos™ is the world's first ATX workstation-class mainboard for the new, open-source friendly IBM POWER8 processor and architecture.
