Live Migration of Power Partitions Running SAP Applications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

IBM offers an array of virtualization technologies that enable users to improve the utilization of their information technology resources. One of those technologies is called IBM Live Partition Mobility (LPM). Live Partition Mobility enables the ability to move a running AIXTM or Linux partition from one physical POWER6TMbased server to another compatible server without application downtime. This useful feature allows applications to continue running during activities that previously required a scheduled downtime, for example, for hardware and firmware maintenance and upgrades, for workload rebalancing, or for server consolidation. This whitepaper demonstrates a working setup for the manual migration of partitions with running SAP applications between POWER6 servers.
