OpenPOWER is an open development community using the Power Architecture to serve the evolving needs of customers and of the research institutes. In brief INAF has an academic membership (free of charge), i.e. non-profit technical membership.

OpenPOWER is “open source” and “open hardware”:

  • to create an open ecosystem using POWER architecture
  • to share expertise: participation of work groups within the OpenPOWER foundation
  • access to technical information for POWER systems

We could use this wiki to collect information and to discuss about astrophysical projects and OpenPOWER technology.

Discussions and open points

There are three main open point of discussion:

  1. Organization of an INAF workgroup that will collect the need of current and future astrophysical projects within INAF that could benefit of the Power architecture. We could provide a list of astrophysical projects and they need. This could be the starting point of the discussion.
    • The wiki of interested AstrophysicalProjects.
    • IBM-Italia could provide access to Segrate and Montpellier facilities to test astrophysical software
  2. Porting of astrophysical software and libraries (PortingAstroLibraries) on PowerLinux systems.
  3. Organization of a dedicated workgroup (OpenPOWERAstroWG) for physical science needs (future observatories, simulations) within the OpenPOWER foundation:
    • This work group (WG) aims at addressing the challenges of current and future physical science projects by identifying the specific requirements. The WG will work closely with other OpenPOWER WGs to understand how the work in progress within relevant WGs can address these requirements.
