A stable solution that offers good control over hardware resources
What is our primary use case?
We are a system integrator and IBM PowerVM is one of the solutions that we implement for our clients. I am not a solution architect, but I provide assistance with PowerVM. It is primarily used for business-critical operations like SAP or Oracle databases.
Pros and Cons
"The most valuable feature is the flexibility in terms of managing the hardware resources such as RAM, CPU, and the network."
"The interface is not user-friendly in places, so it could use some improvement."
What other advice do I have?
My advice to anybody who is researching this type of solution is to choose PowerVM if they want something that is really stable. I think that it is the only answer because the other solutions have perhaps evolved too quickly. We have seen issues with VMware and especially with Hyper-V. Hyper-V is not a mature platform. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
