What do you think of IBM PowerVM?

Originally posted at vcdx133.com. If you are unfortunate enough to be tasked with the design and implementation of an IBM PowerVM virtualisation environment for System p and you normally work with vSphere, then this is the post for you. This entry has been written as a high-level overview of PowerVM and provides context via vSphere comparisons. Next to vSphere, PowerVM is convoluted, finicky and difficult to implement. My PowerVM implementation (4 hosts) took four months from start to finish, when an equivalent project with vSphere takes mere days. In addition, PowerVM is approximately 8-20 times the cost of a comparable vSphere solution. PowerVM is similar to any other IBM product, where the management interface exposes every single option available and you have to work out…

What do you think of IBM PowerVM?

One of the most impressive features of the IBM Power Systems line of servers is their support for IBM’s PowerVM virtualization system. Through PowerVM, you can run multiple machines, or even multiple OSes, on the same server with an extraordinarily low performance hit. Here are seven reasons that PowerVM virtualization may be right for your business. 1. The best performance in the industry. PowerVM virtualization is vastly more efficient than competing VM systems. In tests, PowerVM can outperform VMWare by 50% or more, scaling to make full use of all the processors – real or virtual – you have. 2. Guaranteed security. Security on PowerVM is built directly into the hardware, running checks on all system files at bootup looking for malicious changes. PowerVM-run machines are at least as…
