IBM Virtualization Enhancements Help, But Fall Short

In a truly virtualized environment, an overload of a server--any server--would trigger the activation of a duplicate server to fill the gap. Setting up an application would be as easy as providing a CPU priority, a storage type (high-performance, midperformance or near-line) and a level of importance relative to other applications. IT would receive reports of "running low on high-end disk" instead of engaging in the capacity battles it fights today.
