With Power8 aging and Power9 shipping... Consider picking up a
couple of these to support the development of getting FreeBSD going
on the bare iron without hypervisor. FreeBSD being a member already,
good support for this effort should be available from the OpenPOWER
Foundation / IBM. They seem to want to make Power9 and beyond happen
in a big way. Linux also has support for Power9.
A barebones selfbuilt machine for the dev cluster would cost about
$3200-$3500, and/or donation could be solicited from OpenPOWER
Just an FYI for those unfamiliar, including potential users.
This thread could be updated to list other Power9
hardware sources as they become known by
the FreeBSD community.
