One of the things I’m really interested in at the moment is the mapping of classic virtualtion to application virtualization. Think using logical parttions to run web services.
I’ll retrun to this topic a lot in upcoming blogs, to explore he technology and opportunites for my current project. In the short-term I’m focussing on the opportunities for IBMs’ WebSphere application server to exploit the full dynamic function of IBM System p, dynamic logical partitions. I needed to start by getting a better understanding of the structure of WebSphere and the interaction model between its’ different components. Having looked at a number of the product manuals, I came across this IBM Red piece, WebSphere V6.1 Technical Overview, excellent!
