Keith and Gerry both emailed me and both asked, in different ways, about getting some help on Advanced Power Virtualization. Today we announced a focussed services offering, but there are lots of other resources to help you understand and get started.
- An easy place to start is this guided, no-charge, introduction presentation ? You can view online or download.
- There are currently a set of 2-day “no charge training workshops being run in India, the US and the UK. Details here.
- If you miss the workshops, or perhaps want to do a deep dive and get some hands on, as well as best practices, IBM Education offers a 4-day “System p LPAR and Virtualization II: Implementing Advanced Configurations” class AU780. IT is running eight times in 1Q07 in the USA. Details here.
- For those who want to read, rather than attend, the ITSO as always offers a wealth of online reference material. There is material that covers the basics, the recent changes and enhancements, and a 10/06 Best Practices book. Search here.
Finally, if you would really feel more comfortable letting someone else do the work and learning from them as they do it, today IBM Services announced “IBM Implementation Services for System p — Advanced POWER Virtualization”, if you want to go down this route, you’ll need to talk to your IBM Rep.
