Currently, it's working fine. It's not really lacking too much in the way of features. If it could actually virtualize the entire platform it might be better. If you're having more than one virtualization technology, maybe there's a way to actually have less - one technology to run the data center and maybe one special virtualization for power. If it integrated with other platforms more effectively it might be better. View full review »

The interface is not user-friendly in places, so it could use some improvement. If PowerVM were cheaper then it would better compete with VMware vCenter. View full review »

IBM now makes provides us with quality GUI tools to make the experience easier and successful. I don't have an issue with the current configuration or with the GUI. I worked on both with the team. I would like for IBM to be more focused on the cloud. View full review »
