In our environment we are using PowerVM enterprise edition for P7 and i would like to know is there any release for PowerVM or any kind of upgrade for PowerVM. I am little confused with some comments in web sites like, "upgrade into latest PowerVM", which means upgrade VIO, HMC and firmware or is there release for PowerVM enterprise.
