Linux on the POWER5 processor

IBM's pSeries UNIX server line has run Linux (as well as AIX) for years but now they have the OpenPower machines that only run Linux. These have many advanced features not found else where and are fully supported under Linux like 2 CPUs on a chip, logical partitions to run many copies of the OS fully independantly at one time, dynamic sharing of CPUs so during peaks CPU power can be "borrowed" from other partitions, virtual SCSI disks and virtual Ethernet so each partitions does not need real adapters.

The POWER5 range goes up to 64 CPUs and hold many top world class performance benchmarks - the full range is now available for Linux workloads.

This session will look at what these POWER5 based Linux machines are like from a programmer's, systems administrator's and architect's point-of-view.
