Live Partition Mobility is the next step in the IBMs Power Systems™ virtualization continuum. It can be combined with other virtualization technologies, such as logical partitions, Live Workload Partitions, and the SAN Volume Controller, to provide a fully virtualized computing platform that offers the degree of system and infrastructure flexibility required by today's production data centers.
This IBM® Redbooks® publication discusses how Live Partition Mobility can help technical professionals, enterprise architects, and system administrators:
* Migrate entire running AIX® and Linux® partitions and hosted applications from one physical server to another without disrupting services and loads.
* Meet stringent service-level agreements.
* Rebalance loads across systems quickly, with support for multiple concurrent migrations.
* Use a migration wizard for single partition migrations.
This book can help you understand, plan, prepare, and perform partition migration on IBM Power Systems POWER6™ technology-based servers that are running AIX.
