Some time ago I wrote a short blog about Power and PowerVM Reference Information. Many of the PowerVM resources cover virtualization with the Virtual I/O Server (VIOS). If you are not familiar with the VIOS, I’ve shamelessly copied the following from the Knowledge Center overview information:(more…)
An enhancement made in 7.1 was the support of Suspend/Resume, a feature of PowerVM that was already supported on AIX and Linux.
From the RFA:
PowerVM includes support for an IBM i partition to be suspended, and later resumed. Using Suspend/Resume, clients can perform long-term suspension of partitions, which frees server resources used by that partition, and later resume operation of that partition and its applications on the same server.
