Our primary use case is to migrate the server from a standalone server to a VM server. 

What is most valuable?

The case fileserver on the webserver is the most valuable feature. 

What needs improvement?

The performance should be improved. 

They should reduce the cost to purchase the hardware of the physical server.

It is a stable solution. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's easy to scale. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never contacted customer support. We have a service provider that we contact to help with the implementation and support.  

How was the initial setup?

I didn't have any issues with the deployment. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

My colleagues are the ones who deal with pricing. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it an eight out of ten. I would recommend IBM PowerVM to someone considering it. 

I wouldn't rate it a ten because it has things it can improve on.
