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.

  • Deliver services with superb economics by consolidating virtualized workloads.
  • Deliver services built for the cloud faster by automating deployment of Virtual Machines (VMs) and storage.
  • Optimise utilisation of server and storage resources to control cost and boost Return On Investment (ROI).
  • Scale out or scale up your virtualised deployments without paying underlying performance penalties.
  • Eliminate scheduled downtime by deploying live mobility between servers.
  • Deliver higher quality services by improving virtual resource management.

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).
