Hi Folks,

We've been working over the last few weeks on our node provisioner,
duffy, so that jobs in CICO can request nodes for architectures besides
x86_64. 

We have deployed that code into production and have some ppc64le VMs
ready to take work. To see the flavors available including
memory/vcpu/disk sizing, and to view sample duffy calls please visit:

https://wiki.centos.org/QaWiki/CI/Multiarch

Potential Questions:
--------------------

- What about aarch64?

  Support for aarch64 is coming as soon as we finish installing the
  hardware for this (probably soon after the CentOS Linux 7.1708
  release). We'll use the same pattern as ppc64le for the aarch64 VMs.  

- Can I request nodes using cicoclient? 
  
  There is a pull request pending, a release announcement will follow
  when this is merged. 
  https://github.com/CentOS/python-cicoclient/pull/14

  The relevant documentation for making calls using cioclient is on the
  wiki page.

Multiarch Next Steps:
---------------------

We plan on using these machines to begin exploring multiarch additions
to openshift and openstack in ci.centos.org


Happy Friday!
