.NET Core requested on Linux on Power


We are in a situation where our Warehouse application (Consafe/Astro) will move from AIX to Linux (x86) due to usage of .NET Core for their application development.

I need to .NET Core to run on Linux on Power (RHEL 7.n/8) ppc64le so we can still run the application on Power Systems to gain all the benefits from Power Systems. We have like 40+ sites today running all warehouse parts on S822/S922 fully virtualized (of course) and would like to continue using/reusing Power systems.

    Well, now when .NET 6 is supported on Mainframe... this is more or less a must!
