Partition Mobility demo on YouTube

I mentioned in a post a couple back that we would be demoing the new Power 6 Partition Mobility to the great and the good out in San Francisco. Mark Kressin and the team behind the demo did a great job and the demo’s went like clockwork.

Interestingly, here is a “home video” of a demo and briefing done by Mark on Partition Mobility and briefing from VP of Power Systems Marketing, Scott Handy. If you decide to watch, let it get past the powerpoint style introduction where they explain what is going to happen. The video shows the console and workload migration later in.

What Mark shows is migrating an Oracle DB, driving about 11,000 transactions per minute on a 4-way Power-6 System on to 12-way, non-disruptively without a single transaction being lost. Neat.
