IBM Expands Support For Linux On Power Systems Servers

Stocks in this article: IBM

KVM Support Planned for Power Systems Portfolio IBM intends to make KVM available across its Linux-only Power servers.  The KVM hypervisor is an integral part of the Linux kernel, offering an optimized virtualization technology for Linux workloads.  IBM has long supported KVM on its x86-based products and plans to make it available on IBM's Linux-only Power Systems product line-up next year.  As a result, clients will have greater choice when they adopt Linux-based systems to drive new workloads such as big data, cloud, mobile and social computing.

IBM has participated in a wide range of open source projects since 1999, and today this includes Open Stack, Open Daylight, Apache and Eclipse in addition to Linux.  Hundreds of IBM programmers and engineers are contributing to open source as part of the collection of global open source communities, and this includes several dozen experts in China working on projects such as KVM. In November 2012, IBM opened its first KVM Center of Excellence in Beijing. The Center, also located at the IBM China System Center, promotes KVM-based solutions from IBM and its partners, and to help customers and business partners explore and adopt open virtualization and open cloud strategies. The Center was established as the first KVM Center worldwide because of the rapid adoption of virtualization and cloud computing in China. A second KVM Center of Excellence for Wall Street clients was opened in New York earlier this year.
