Power Systems for AIX - PowerVM I Implementing Virtualization - AN30G


This course provides an overview of the PowerVM edition's features on POWER6, POWER7, and POWER8 processor-based systems. It explains the new features and benefits of virtualization including processor virtualization, Virtual I/O Server, and virtual devices, such as virtual Ethernet, virtual SCSI, and virtual Fibre Channel adapters. Basic and advanced configurations of the Virtual I/O Server and its clients are discussed including various availability options. Expand your knowledge about PowerVM features that were introduced in Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN11G). This course provides lectures and hands on labs in an instructor lead course environment, either in a face-to-face classroom or in a live virtual classroom environment (ILO - Instructor Led Online).

      You must have advanced system administration experience with AIX 6 or AIX 7. This prerequisite can be met by attending one of the following courses: Power Systems for AIX II: Implementation and Administration (AN12G) Power Systems for AIX III: Advanced Administration and Problem Determination (AN15G) AIX Jumpstart for UNIX Professionals (AN14G) Alternatively, you must have equivalent AIX and LPAR skills. General TCP/IP knowledge is strongly recommended. This prerequisite can be met by attending TCP/IP for AIX Administrators (AN21G). You are also expected to have logical partition administration skills on Power Systems servers, which can be obtained by attending Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN11G).
