POWER CI Request Form

The Open Source Lab partners with IBM to host POWER based servers in order to provide an open platform for innovation to the open source community. For more information about this partnership, please visit our POWER Development Hosting page.

Please use the form below to request new access to the POWER CI service provided by the OSUOSL.

For any changes, updates, or issues with an existing project please send the specific request as an email to powerci-request@osuosl.org and include the original project name in the subject line and the names of the Jenkins jobs that have the issue in the message body.

This access is intended only for free and open source projects who qualify and are approved by both the OSUOSL and IBM. For proprietary sourced projects or products please use other POWER resources which can be found here.

The POWER CI service uses Docker to deploy Jenkins workers. In the future we will add access to use OpenStack to deploy Jenkins workers (ppc64le only).
