IBM PowerVM Editions The PowerVM (formerly known as Advanced POWER™ Virtualization) Standard Edition feature, standard on selected Power™ Systems servers and optionally available on others, allows businesses to increase system utilization while helping to ensure that applications get required resources in a non-disruptive fashion. As a by-product, multiple independent AIX and Linux operating environments may be run simultaneously on the same system. Consolidating applications can help reduce complexity and lower operational costs. Micro-Partitioning technology allows the system to be fine tuned with logical partitions (virtual servers) as small as 1/10th of a processor, helping improve system resource utilization. The easy-to-use, Web-based Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM), available on Express models, allows the cost-effective consolidation of multiple partitions on a single server by helping reduce the time and effort required to manage virtual devices and partitions.
