Servergy has announced its newest product in the Servergy Power Linux Series line, a Linux-on-Power development platform called "P-Cubed".

According to its developers, the computer is an all-in development board catering primarily to enterprise Linux programmers, but is can also be used by educators and serious hobbyists as well.

It features Power Architecture in an SoC (system on chip) that encompasses high-end hardware, including multi-core with hardware virtualization, which help the board to deliver a level of quality that is not available for other similar solutions.

Servergy will deliver support for a broad range of Linux and Java distributions and the company will be developing a developer portal that will be open soon on its website for taking pre-orders.

"As a proud member of the global Linux Foundation and Power.org organizations, Servergy is committed to be an industry leader in the Hyper-Efficiency Linux-on-Power space and to helping grow a diverse global development community built on innovation, collaboration, and education is key.”

"The overwhelmingly positive response we are getting on our new "P-Cubed" innovation platform shows that it clearly supports those objectives," said Bill Mapp, Servergy CEO.

The P-Cubed computer uses the same proven Power Architecture developed by Apple, IBM and Motorola (now Freescale), which is used by everyone from the DOD to the NASA Mars Rover to the Sony, Nintendo and X-Box gaming stations.

Enterprise Linux developers can now have that same power in their own hands for developing serious enterprise applications.

The announcement has been made at USD (Ubuntu Developer Summit) in Denmark, Copenhagen. This spot was chosen because the developers intend on fully support Ubuntu, not to mention Debian, Fedora, and openSUSE.

The number of SoC systems is getting bigger and the developers have started to implement powerful components. A final price has not been revealed, but it’s expected to be less than $200 (€155)
