Welcome Back to the WMSUG 2014 - 2015 Season!

Announcement for WMSUG & i-94 User Group Meeting - September 17th 

"IBM i Virtualization and Open Storage options" 
by: Mike Schambureck 
IBM i Virtualization and Flex Consultant 
Lab Services Power Systems Delivery Practice 
IBM System & Technology Group; IBM


Recent releases of IBM i have been adding more virtualization options for the end users. IBM i can host Windows servers, VMware, x86 and Power Linux, AIX and other IBM i partitions. The list of Storage Area Networks (SANs) that IBM i can attach to has grown by using the Virtual IO Server to host IBM i, and more recently, through direct attachment to IBM i. This presentation will go into those options and what it takes to configure some of them.
