PowerVM provides industrial-strength virtualisation technology for AIX, IBM i and Linux operating systems (OS) on IBM Power Systems. PowerVM virtualizes processor, memory, storage and input/output (I/O) resources for client’s virtual machines (VMs), enabling increased asset utilisation, enhanced infrastructure flexibility and reduced costs.
IBM® PowerVM provides the industrial-strength virtualisation solution for IBM Power Systems servers that run IBM AIX, IBM i and Linux® workloads. Based on more than a decade of evolution and innovation, PowerVM represents the state of the art in enterprise virtualisation and is broadly deployed in production environments worldwide by most Power Systems owners.
The Power Systems family of scale-out and scale-up servers includes proven workload consolidation platforms that help clients control costs while improving overall performance, availability and energy efficiency. With these servers and PowerVM virtualisation solutions, an organisation can consolidate large numbers of applications and servers, fully virtualise its system resources and provide a more flexible, dynamic IT infrastructure. In other words, Power Systems with PowerVM deliver the benefits of virtualisation without limits.
PowerVM also offers a secure and resilient virtualisation environment, built on the advanced Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) features, extreme scalability and leadership performance2 of the Power Systems platform, based on the outstanding Power processors.
We have expert capabilities on this IBM product and support various systems with varying degrees of complexity, whether it’s VIO Server, or IVM (IBM’s Integrated Virtualisation Manager).
VMware vSphere, the industry’s first cloud operating system, leverages the power of virtualization to transform datacentres into dramatically simplified cloud computing infrastructures and enables IT organizations to deliver the next generation of flexible and reliable IT services, using internal and external resources, securely and with low risk and with a lower management overhead.
We have the skills and expertise to deploy new or support existing landscapes, and we pride ourselves in the delivery of highly available, robust and secure infrastructure.
Our expertise extends to:
Infrastructure –The set of components that comprehensively virtualize server, storage and network resources, aggregate them and allocate them precisely on demand to applications based on business priority.
Application – The set of components that provide built-in service level controls to all applications running on VMware vSphere, regardless of application type or operating system.
Administration – automation of day-to-day operational tasks with deep visibility into every aspect of large and small VMware vSphere environments is provided by VMware vCenter Server.
We will maximise your flexibility and add value. These are just some of the benefits:
Deliver services with superb economics by consolidating virtualised workloads.
As a competitor to VMware products, the Microsoft platform offers similar advantages when running enterprise class solutions in a virtualised environment.
We will focus our effort on providing the best support available. Hyper-V has many features which include:-
Hyper-V customers will take advantage of:-
Scalability, Performance & Density – We will show you how, with Hyper-V you can run the biggest, most powerful virtual machines to handle the demands of the biggest workloads. As hardware scale grows, customers wishing to take advantage of the largest physical systems to drive the highest levels of density and reduce overall costs can do so successfully with Hyper-V.
Security & Multitenancy – We looked not only at the different capabilities such as BitLocker, which enables a level of physical security for the virtualized hosts, but also some of the in-box, granular networking security capabilities, which, unlike VMware, are simply built into Hyper-V, which enables customers to securely and easily isolate and control access to their key workloads inside the virtualized environment, at significantly lower cost.
Flexible Infrastructure – We discussed how, in a modern datacenter, customers are looking to be agile, in order to respond to changing business demands quickly, and efficiently, and how through the new innovation in Live Migration, Hyper-V provides this in the box. Being able to move workloads flexibly around the infrastructure is of incredible importance, and in addition, customers want to be able to choose where best to deploy their workloads based on the needs of that workload specifically, and to do that, Network Virtualization plays a significant part. Also, for customers with heterogeneous infrastructures, with a mixture of both Linux and Windows-based workloads, Hyper-V provides the ideal platform through the continued engineering and development to improve Linux performance on Hyper-V.
High Availability & Resiliency – As customers’ confidence in virtualization grows, and they virtualize their more mission-critical workloads, the importance of keeping those workloads continuously available grows significantly. With Windows Server 2012 R2, having capabilities built into the platform that not only help keep those workloads highly available, but also, in the event of a disaster, quick to restore in another geographical location, is of immense importance when choosing a platform for today’s modern datacenter. We discussed specific improvements at both the fabric and the workload level that help to ensure that customers can keep their most mission critical applications and data as continuously available as possible.
