With Capacity on Demand (CoD) offerings you can dynamically activate one or more resources on yourserver as your business peaks dictate.
You can activate inactive processor cores or memory units that are already installed on your server on a temporary and permanent basis. A standard request for Trial CoD requires you to complete a form including contact information and vital product data (VPD) from your POWER5 or later model with inactive CoD resources.
A Standard request will activate either:
- 2 processor cores and/or 4 GB of memory for 30 days
- 8 processor cores and/or 64 GB of memory for 30 days.
Subsequent standard requests can be made after each purchase of a permanent processor activation. An HMC is required to manage Trial CoD activations.
