Power9 Inexpensive Development Testbed

grarpamp
With Power8 aging and Power9 shipping... Consider picking up a
couple of these to support the development of getting FreeBSD going
on the bare iron without hypervisor. FreeBSD being a member already,
good support for this effort should be available from the OpenPOWER
Foundation / IBM. They seem to want to make Power9 and beyond happen
in a big way. Linux also has support for Power9.

A barebones selfbuilt machine for the dev cluster would cost about
$3200-$3500, and/or donation could be solicited from OpenPOWER
Foundation.

https://openpowerfoundation.org/

Just an FYI for those unfamiliar, including potential users.

This thread could be updated to list other Power9
hardware sources as they become known by
the FreeBSD community.

A few of us FreeBSD/powerpc64 fans are watching the developments
closely.
