IBM Power Virtualization Center (PowerVC) is the new advanced virtualization management offering that simplifies creating and managing virtual machines on IBM Power Systems™ servers using PowerVM® or PowerKVM hypervisors.
PowerVC leverages OpenStack technology to enable IBM Power System servers to integrate into a Software Defined Environment (SDE) and provide the necessary foundation required for the delivery of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) within the Cloud.
IBM PowerVC is simple to install, configure and use. Being based on OpenStack enables broad support for vendor devices and open APIs that accelerate integration into existing infrastructures.
Software Defined Environments use virtualization to express hardware resources as manageable software entities and to control them with advanced programmed automation.
