SAS Deployment on IBM Power Servers with IBM Power VM Dedicated-Donating LPARs
The paper demonstrates the use cases and benefits of deploying the SAS software on IBM Power Systems using dedicated-donating logical partitions (LPARs) on IBM PowerVM hypervisor. It shows an example of how SAS Grid can be deployed on dedicated-donating LPARs. IBM PowerVM provides enterprise virtualization solution for IBM Power Systems servers and blades. Based on more than a decade of innovation and evolution, PowerVM represents state of the art in enterprise virtualization and is broadly deployed in production environments worldwide by most Power Systems clients.
