It’s always a great opportunity when you get a situation which you never faced, scenario you never worked on, technology you never experienced. As someone rightly said – the new challenges we confront today, decide our knowledge curve tomorrow. I believe in this philosophy and always challenge myself with something new.
As a capacity planner, I have to be proficient in virtualization techniques and latest happening in this space. Last year I got an opportunity to work on IBM’s power systems. Being from Solaris/Linux background it was quite difficult in the beginning to grasp the terminologies as they are different from Oracle VM, Solaris logical domains. So I decided to learn it and get comfortable with it. My paper is a result of my efforts in that direction.
Virtualization is integral part of today’s Infrastructure and beleive it or not most of the applications/services we use on a daily basis run on virtualized environment “beautifully” wrapped with cloud’s charasteristics. There are several virtualization technologies and the vendor market is also crowded enough. In my paper I have discussed operating system virtualization offer from IBM. Hope you will enjoy the reading. Any comments (postive/negative), feedback, corrections are most welcome.
Happy reading …
