IBM Flex System Power Compute Nodes - Virtualization and Management Global Knowledge Egypt

The IBM PureFlex System is a new category of computing that combines multiple server architectures, networking, chassis, storage, and system management capability into a single integrated system that is easy to deploy and manage. This intermediate class on Power compute nodes starts with an overview of the IBM Power Systems platform and how the new product fits into the Power portfolio. A comprehensive description of the IBM Flex System Power compute nodes, its architecture, subsystems, I/O and systems management provide the foundation for virtualization. Virtualization topics discuss virtual servers, their characteristics, virtual processors, time slicing, virtual I/O, VIOS and how to create virtual servers. Installation of supported operating systems, settings, the overall process, NIM basics, NIM install and installing a virtual server are parts of this class. We will address the concepts of managing Power virtual servers and the role of IBM Flex System Manager VMControl within the IBM PureFlex environment. POWER7+ and IBM FSM Explorer concepts are incorporated in this class.
