There's a ppc64el KVM guest available for developers (not strictly DD).

If little endian is not a problem for your needs (I see the recent
compilers have all the bits in for vector built ins and stuff), then
I hope that should suffice your needs.

See [1].

IIRC there are some options to accessing IBM Power7 partitions for free
for some time on the IBM website, but I haven't checked those, and not
sure it's possible to run Debian on them.

Hope this helps,
