The purpose of this document is to define the architecture and minimum system requirements on which all LoPAPR platforms are based. These requirements are intended to be precise enough to assure OS compatibility for several operating system (OS) levels (current and “n-1” versions), broad enough to cover workstations through server platforms in single or multiprocessor configurations, and forward-looking enough to allow evolution.
