PowerLinux Development Hosting

POWER7 ServerThe Open Source Lab partners with IBM to host POWER7-based servers, making partitions available to the open source community. Members of the community can use these POWER7 servers to develop and test open source projects on the Power architecture platform and in a PowerLinux environment. These systems are intended for functional development and testing work, but are not to be used for performance testing.

To request access to a POWER7 system partition, submit a partition request form. For more information about developing software for PowerLinux systems, see the PowerLinux Community.

To request a shell account on a general-purpose PowerLinux Fedora based partition, use the shell request access form. Accounts on other partitions are administered by the owning communities. Contact the owners directly for details.
