This advanced course is appropriate for System Administrators, Technical Support Personnel, and Business Partners responsible for implementing LPARs on IBM Power Systems with AIX servers.
Power Systems for AIX - PowerVM I Implementing Virtualization
This course provides an overview of the PowerVM edition's features on POWER6, POWER7, and POWER8 processor-based systems. It explains the new features and benefits of virtualization including processor virtualization, Virtual I/O Server, and virtual devices, such as virtual Ethernet, virtual SCSI, and virtual Fibre Channel adapters. Basic and advanced configurations of the Virtual I/O Server and its clients are discussed including various availability options.
Expand your knowledge about PowerVM features that were introduced in Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning.
This course provides lectures and hands on labs in an instructor lead course environment, either in a face-to-face classroom or in a live virtual classroom environment (ILO - Instructor Led Online).
