Overall Satisfaction with IBM Power System Virtual Server

You will get the best performance, stability, and security when you use IBM PowerVM, in addition to the CPU pooling option, which allows you to combine cores and save a lot of money on software licenses. Also, when you have unanticipated performance challenges, online/dynamic resource allocation can save you time and money. Finally, it improves your availability and business reputation.
  • Uptime and maintaining linear performance even when the workload is high.
  • IBM technology can be used to create any form of workload and virtualization solution.
  • Easy and interesting to work with power Virtual Server.
  • The fact that IBM Power VC requires a powerful processor to run.
  • I can only fantasize about being able to install a Power version on an Intel system.
  • The fact that there aren't as many repositories as there are in another Unix family, in my opinion, is the least useful.

  • Virtualization of any form is conceivable, as is the automation of workloads, which solves day-to-day problems.
  • There are several tutorials for the services, as well as improvements to the deployments.
  • They offer a facility to even load with other machines, so there is no downtime with the maintenance windows.
This would be a better virtualization option for AIX, Linux, and IBM I clients; additional services would almost certainly be supported as well; nevertheless, it is up to you to decide if this is right for you.
New virtual domains allow you to improve on existing virtual domains, and they operate equally well on Linux and Windows. Storage and deployment speed are comparable to other choices such as VMware.
Take into note that the PowerVM's services are a combination of hardware, firmware, and software that supports CPU, network, and disk virtualization; this may have limits that you should investigate more based on your needs. POWER7, POWER6, and POWER5 hardware, POWER Hypervisor, and Virtual I/O Server are the key virtualization technologies.
