HPVM - Overview

domingo, 8 de janeiro de 2012

HP Integrity Virtual Machines (Integrity VM) is a soft partitioning and virtualization technology, within the
HP Virtual Server Environment, which enables you to create multiple virtual servers or machines with shared resourcing within a single HP Integrity server or nPartition.
This type of virtualization technology enables you to:

•Maximize server utilization and resource flexibility
•Consolidate enterprise-class servers
•Rapidly deploy new environments
•Improve cost of ownership
•Isolate operating environments

HP Integrity VM provides:

•Software fault and security isolation
•Shared processor and I/O
•Automatic dynamic resource allocation based on demand and entitlement
•Dynamic memory migration
Each virtual machine hosts its own “guest” operating system instance, applications, and users.
HP Integrity Virtual Machines runs on any HP Integrity server (including blades),
and supports the following guests (at this time):

•HP-UX 11i v2 and v3
•Windows Server 2003 (SP1 and SP2
•RHEL AP 4.4, 4.5
•SLES 10 SP1

The HPVM isn't the old vPars, the old vPar you can use it in 11.11 too and the architecture is completely different.

You can't use HT together HPVM.
