Please vote

    Salla,
    I'm confused, IBM shipped a virtual edition of XG45 and XI52 late last year.

    And I've been running 'em both in my VMWare Workstation happily ever since. Yeah, it's not supported on workstation, but either spring for a copy of ESX or run it unsupported.

    1) Vow Ken.
    "I've been running 'em both in my VMWare Workstation happily ever since"
    -- Is this true
    Can you share some more details any URL or PDF to get this/

    2) This would be a great thing if we can get it run on local workstations...I'd vote for it million time :) if it is allowed

    Thanks!

    I saw the release alert last year when it was made available.
    Can you give any info as far as the licensing involved?

    My wish was that they would release a software version for Linux - primarily for testing or proof-of-concept installations...

    (VMWare would not have been my first choice for such a thing... probably not even in a list of choices for that matter... but I digress...)

    Salla,
    It's licensed just like the hardware, you have to buy licenses, and as I understand it, it's not much less expensive than the hardware version. It only runs on VMWare - only supported on ESX, but like I said, it works fine on my Linux-hosted VM workstation. Right at the moment I'm running a virtual XG45, a virtual XI52, a base Linux VM with MQ etc., and all of 'em talk to each other just fine.

    See http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?infotype=OC&subtype=NA&htmlfid=897/ENUS5725-J91&appname=System%20Storage

    The downside here is that now I can be writing DP stuff on the plane :-)
