|1:00 PM||Bill Bitner - IBM - z/VM 6.2: Increasing the Endless Possibilities of Virtualization
By now you have probably heard about z/VM 6.2 delivering on the promise of Single System Image (SSI) Clusters and Live Guest Relocation (LGR). It all sounds cool, but are you struggling with where to use it? Wondering what makes it different than other virtualization solutions? This session has two objectives. First, to validate that this isn't just another clustering or guest mobility solution. The team responsible for SSI and LGR has over 2500 combined years of virtualization experience, and that experience shows through. Second, we discuss some ways that SSI and LGR allow you greater flexibility and better business models. Some of these are fairly conventional, some are a little off the normal thought process.
