IT Jungle: IBM to Bring Live Migration to IBM 7.1

From Tim Prickett-Morgan at IT Jungle:

Ian Jarman, manager of Power Systems Software at IBM “…said that Big Blue was going to deliver something for IBM i that all virtualized operating systems in the 21st century need: live migration of virtual machines or logical partitions from one physical server to another.”

Jarman said the Technology Refresh program, which allows the company to slip new technology and support for new platforms into the hardware “…without requiring the company to do a complete rebuild of the system as a dot release….was going to be used to bring live partition mobility, Big Blue’s term for one kind of live migration, to Power Systems machines.”

About time. Get the complete story here.

Wonder what this is going to do to the IBM i high availability market?
