Summary:  Today, hardware virtualization is prevalent throughout the IT industry. Having a single server perform the same amount of work previously done by several, is a great a value proposition for companies of any size. Although there are volumes of documentation available — both online and printed — the vastness of the resources make it difficult to navigate them. This article begins to address that challenge by providing a list of high-level, planning-and-deployment best practices, followed by a series of lower-level optimization steps using a sample database environment running an IBM DB2® pureScale® installation for IBM POWER7® servers.
