    IBM® PowerVM® virtualization technology is a combination of hardware and software that supports and manages the virtual environments on POWER5-, POWER5+, IBM POWER6®, and IBM POWER7®-based systems.

    PowerVM is available on IBM Power Systems™, and IBM BladeCenter® servers as optional Editions, and is supported by the IBM AIX®, IBM i, and Linux operating systems. You can use this set of comprehensive systems technologies and services to aggregate and manage resources by using a consolidated, logical view. Deploying PowerVM virtualization and IBM Power Systems offers you the following benefits:

    • Lower energy costs through server consolidation
    • Reduced cost of your existing infrastructure
    • Better management of the growth, complexity, and risk of your infrastructure

    This IBM Redbooks® publication is an extension of IBM PowerVM Virtualization Introduction and Configuration, SG24-7940. It provides an organized view of best practices for managing and monitoring your PowerVM environment concerning virtualized resources managed by the Virtual I/O Server.
