Virtual Loaner Program: www.ibm.com/systems/vlp
On 10/13 we had the 3rd major VLP deployment for 2008. See what's new below:
PowerVM Live Partition Mobility (LPM)
Users are now able to test, certify, demonstrate their solutions running on AIX 6.1 POWER6 with Live Partition Mobility! As with other features available in the VLP, Live Partition Mobility is easy to use and is available at no charge for IBM PartnerWorld Members! Pass the word on to your ISVs so they can certify their solution with LPM.
The Partition Mobility function requires a promotional code - 213068. Please reference the VLP LPM User Guide to get started.
If your ISV is new to the latest PowerVM & AIX virtualization technologies, there are Live Demos available for Partition Mobility and Application Mobility which provide a high level explanation & business value - and you get to show off functionality working live! See more about the Live Demos below. These demos can be a good way to introduce these topics before the Partner tests within the VLP, IIC, or in house.
