If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering IBM PowerVM, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
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.
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.
I would rate it an eight out of ten. To make it a ten, I would like for them to add automation and configuration tools in order to help use the manager.
I think everybody is going to be migrating to cloud and I think that IBM can make things easier if they also did this. I would rate IBM PowerVM nine out of ten. In the next release, I hope to see an extension of both the end part with the GUI.
This solution is by IBM and they are a vendor who does what they say they're going to do. I recommend IBM and this solution any day. Without hesitation, I would suggest to anybody that they try it. Overall, I am happy with this solution, although more research and any new additions are always welcome. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
The program has very limited solutions for the virtualization of containers, so I the next version I would like to see that improved. I will still, however, give a nine out of ten rating.
