The OpenBrick Community introduced a new project, named Umigumi, that aims to simplify the installation and the distribution of OS installers by using Flash memory cards. Based on user input, Umigumi creates compact Flash cards with bootable code. The card can then be inserted into a different system to reconfigure that system as a router, firewall, VPN, OGG player, print server, thin client and so on. Originally designed to work with OpenBrick, Umigumi can support any embedded hardware platform, including PowerPC, StrongARM/XScale, Mips/Mipsel, SuperH, SPARC and 68K, running open-source operating systems.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
