IBM Boasts Strides in Virtualization

IBM has announced several developments in virtualization this week.

The company rolled out a line of products, provided a timeline for upcoming releases and touted a new partnership program Monday.

IBM's Virtualization Engine Family launched a "Ready for Virtualization" program that allows independent software vendors to test and validate solutions of IBM's eServer platforms. The company has posted a guide to its new virtualization technologies on its new "Virtualize Everything" Web page.

IBM Virtualization Engine TS7510 includes an integrated disk and tape solution that can reduce data backup and restoration time while increasing efficiency.

Integrated Virtualization Manager simplifies p5 systems virtualization deployment, with a wizard-driven, browser-based user interface, provides new capabilities for UNIX servers. It enables the creation of MicroPartitions ready for installation of AIX 5L or Linux operating system with three mouse clicks. It is included free with the optional purchase of Advanced POWER Virtualization on IBM's p5 servers. IVM is designed to simplify and speed up setup and configuration of multiple partition environments.
