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.

+Rackspace have just announced a new OpenPOWER system. Lots of interesting stuff, not the least of which is that it uses OpenBMC, an Open Source BMC stack that our team have been working on.

It also ships with our Open Source firmware, making this one of the most open servers you can buy.

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...

From the "this is completely useless but we're just having fun" department, I've been poking at +Andrei Warkentin​'s prephv hack that gets at least someway into the Windows NT 4.0 for PowerPC installer on (a simulated) POWER8.

Why not KVM or qemu doing full system emulation? It's too easy and you don't learn as much. The end result isn't important, it's the journey that's the fun part!
 
Sometimes, programming is just for fun. This is what PREPHV is. To quote the README: “This is mostly a huge ugly hack, derived from my ppc64le_hello code. The running philosophy here is to throw things together late at night with my family asleep and see…

We released our new Linux on Power developer portal. Still in its infancy, but we hope it will grow up to be big and strong! https://developer.ibm.com/linuxonpower/
Linux on IBM Power Systems Developer portal. Developing Linux applications on IBM Power Systems is easier than ever. There are 1000's of Linux binaries that run on and are optimized for Power with more being added all the time.
