    Abstract

    If you have been looking for a way to have your applications written for little endian (LE) processors run on IBM Power Systems - now you can under IBM® PowerVM® virtualization. The new little endian guest support for IBM PowerVM brings Linux based workloads that adhere to the LE mode of operation into the fold. With this addition your Linux applications that support little endian mode can take advantage of all the capabilities that IBM Power Systems™ offer by using the PowerVM LE guest support. This means no code changes and maybe just a simple recompile.

    This IBM Redbooks Solution Guide provides insight into the little endian guest support for IBM PowerVM and discusses IBM PowerVM's business value and related information.
