The objective of this white paper is to provide IT executives and UNIX subject matter experts (SMEs) with a high level comparison of the UNIX virtualization offerings from HP for Integrity and HP-UX1 vs. IBM for Power and AIX.
To assist in making a balanced comparison, this paper provides:
- A high-level, feature-to-feature comparison of key areas of virtualization and virtualization management.
- Modular table-based comparisons.
- Information from publicly available resources.
Consolidating data center servers through virtualization is integral to successful IT systems design. Read the white paper and see how IBM PowerVM on POWER7 offers higher ratios of server virtualization than VMware on comparable Intel x86 platforms. This enables superior performance, greater operational savings and improved efficiency.
