Support direct attached fibre tape - power 10

Many existing Power customers have direct attached fibre tape drives/libraries and VTL’s. Not having a supported adapter, on scale out p10, is a big problem. Requiring a fibre switch is both cost prohibitive and creates a support issue (no in-hous...

Evaluate if Nutanix on Power Systems is valid (again) with new workloads

Nutainx runs quite many areas inside companies, like VDI but also databases and plain app-vms. In this scenario also offering Power Systems as HW nodes might make the usage of Power Systems easier for customers to implement/use for Linux and AIX.

Make the control panel more physically accessible (specific issue starting with Power 9 Tower models).

It would be useful so anyone actually using the control doesn't have to lay on the floor to read it. It should be readily accessible for anyone using it. (i.e. Performing system installs, repairs, etc. when physical access is needed to it.)
