A new beta program announced yesterday (23 April 2007) by IBM makes it possible to run x86 applications on System P (Power 5) hardware.

System P AVE (System P Application Virtual Environment) allows consolidation of AIX 5L™ and Linux on POWER™ and x86 Linux applications* on the same server!

Be a part of the System p AVE beta program

Clients and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) are encouraged to try System p AVE during the beta program. As a beta program participant, you will participate in an open forum, and your feedback can influence the generally available features and its distribution, documentation and support processes.

To engage the beta team and access the System p AVE feature for testing on your System p or POWER processor-based blade server, simply accept the online agreement and download the code.

ISVs may also test using the Virtual Loaner Program (VLP). The VLP provides System p partitions with System p AVE installed, ready for your remote access. VLP usage requires PartnerWorld membership and login, as well as a one-time usage agreement.
