IBM Announces New Version of Virtualization Technology

Filed under: IBM, Virtualization — tuxicity @ 8:35 am


The new virtualization product release can host more than 1,000 virtual images on a single copy of z/VM. The new software can be used to replace many physical servers with “virtual” ones running in a single mainframe. The latest z/VM release is designed to help clients prepare for data center growth by offering support for larger memory configurations which are designed to help clients eliminate the need to spread large virtual-machine based workloads across multiple copies of z/VM. In addition to enhancing memory utilization, the new software plans to deliver increased CPU capacity with support for up to 32 Processor Units–up to a 33% increase over the previous release of z/VM. Combined with Linux on System z, the software can make more informed choices about how memory is managed allowing z/VM to run more virtual servers in the same amount of memory.
