SFHA Solutions 6.0.1: About virtualization solutions for AIX environments

Level 4


Virtualization technologies such as IBM PowerVM enable you to create isolated virtual environments or logical partitions on the same physical system. The virtualized computing environment can be abstracted from all physical devices. This enables you to consolidate and centrally manage your workloads on a system for greater flexibility and efficiency. Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions (SFHA Solutions) 6.0.1 supports AIX Virtual I/O Server (VIOS), logical partitions (LPARs), and the VIOS-based virtual environment. 

For more information on VIOS, LPARs, and the VIOS-based virtual enfironment, see:
