Depending on what one wants to do with such a server, getting software stacks to run on it is important. For example, Oracle doesn't compile Java for PowerPC/Linux (no surprise there), one has to get the IBM J9 version. As long as one is using mostly Open Source software, it should be possible to build a version for PowerPC, but commercial software may be harder to find for PowerPC/Linux.

I know they recently became a members of Power.org https://www.power.org/press-release/servergy-joins-power-org/ There should be some technical documentation there also in the coming weeks.

When people release new product lines based on PowerPC these days, it's news. Personally, I'm glad to see PowerPC still going strong. IMO it's a much better instruction set than x86 or ARM. Now we just need a development board with Raspberry Pi pricing.

Please chime in if you have any insights into this company and the chips it is using...or have some insights on Power servers beyond IBM.
