Notes: Meeting Notes:IBM i Virtualization & Open Storage

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.

We will also kick-off the Student Game Activity. We have quite a few students that have already signed up as well as some mentors. If you're interested in being involved, please contact or .
