Pinned topic Cloudburst and System p

‏2009-09-16T18:48:59Z |
Is there any possible way to use System p in Cloudburst appliance?

Obviously System p is not supported in VMware ESX or ESXi. It is there any way of adding pre-configured virtual system images on LPARs to Cloudburst? Is in the product road map PowerVM support?

Thanks for your answers.

Kind regards,
Matej

    At this point, WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance only supports deploying virtualized WebSphere Application Server instances onto ESX or ESXi hosts.

    Support for using p Series servers as the private cloud, and thus utilizing virtualization capabilities available in System p, are a high priority for the next wave of virtualization support.

    We are aware of that, but we are researchers looking for workaround of this limitation. It is a rumor that in IBM labs System p is already used in CloudBurst. It is possible to get access to alpha/beta version of software which supports System p. We would appreciate anything what would give us some progress on this matter.

    There is a WebSphere CloudBurst 1.1 Beta program that has either started or should be starting soon. You should work with your IBM WebSphere sales representative to determine if participation in the Beta is still available. You can also discuss the exact function you would be looking to try out in the Beta.
