    Abstract

    This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides a broad explanation of the kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) on IBM Z® and how it can use the z/Architecture®. It focuses on the planning of the environment and provides installation and configuration definitions that are necessary to build, manage, and monitor a KVM on Z environment.

    This publication applies to the supported Linux on Z distributions (Red Hat, SUSE, and Ubuntu).

    This IBM Redbooks publication is useful to IT architects, system administrators, and users who plan for and install KVM on IBM Z. The reader is expected to have an understanding of IBM Z hardware, KVM, Linux on Z, and virtualization concepts.
