The most popular innovation of IBM® AIX® 6.1 is arguably workload partitioning. Workload partitioning allows you to have fewer operating system images on your managed system, which is accomplished by allowing virtualization of operating system resources. Live Application Mobility is an important component of workload partitioning and provides for increased availability for workload partitions (WPARs). Simply put, it allows you to move WPARs from one logical partition (LPAR) to another while the WPARs are up and running. It provides automatic, policy-based relocation of workload between systems using WPARs. This article explores how and when to use Live Application Mobility and how to configure a system and its applications to run it.
