November 21, 2011:  Today, TLC has announced "POWER Virtualization Technologies" course:
  • Course Title :POWER Virtualization Technologies
  • Course Code: TN160
Virtualization has become a pervasive means of consolidating workloads on fewer systems, controlling server sprawl and minimizing costs. With IBM Power Systems and PowerVM virtualization technologies, organizations can achieve virtualization with outstanding performance.

IBM Power Systems with PowerVM technology demonstrated superior performance and greater efficiency in using system capacity at higher utilization, as well as at higher resource contention (over-commit levels), and superior scaling with higher throughput performance.

IBM has a 40-plus year history of virtualization. No other vendor can come close to making this claim. The fact is that virtually everything they have implemented on the mid-range, has already been done on the mainframe.

IBM offer one virtualization strategy, PowerVM, unlike the myriad of solutions available from Sun or HP. The technology itself uses a hypervisor-based solution (which IBM has finally implemented though Xen, but only on their x86 platform), which sits between the operating system and the hardware.

This course is intended for persons who are system administrators, technical support individuals, and IBM Business Partners who implement or are planning to implement virtualization on IBM POWER Systems. The audience for this training may also include: 

  • System Architects
  • System Integrators
  • IT Consultants 
  • IT Managers
