I see no reason why they wouldn't.

It doesn't really matter, for the price they'll be sold for you might as 
well buy POWER as you'd be getting better performance (8 threads/core) 
and an actual owner controlled device.

I can't understand as to why everyone complains that power is expensive 
when they're comparing it to low end x86 processors, in terms of raw 
compute power you'd spend just as much with an off the shelf equivalent 
dell/hpe - the high end xeon CPU's alone are 2K+ if you DIY.
