IBM Systems Director VMControl Enterprise Edition for IBM x86, V2.4 significantly expands the virtualization management capabilities available for IBM System x platforms by delivering comprehensive system pools support for virtual servers deployed within a Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) environment. For the first time, VMControl life-cycle management, image management, and system pools are available for IBM x86 KVM technology-based systems.

IBM Systems Director VMControl V2.4 simplifies workload management for rapidly deploying virtual appliances to create virtual servers that are configured with the operating system and software applications on demand. It also enables virtualization administrators to group resources into system pools, which enable them to centrally manage and control the different workloads in their virtualized environment. VMControl manages virtual appliances that use the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) for packaging, delivery, and deployment of preconfigured, ready-to-run solutions. Virtualization platforms supported include IBM Power Systems with PowerVM, IBM System x with KVM, VMware, or Hyper-V, and IBM System z with z/VM or zEnterprise.

IBM Systems Director VMControl is available in two editions: Express and Enterprise. VMControl Express Edition aims to deliver simplified management, which can mean faster time-to-solution in the event of a problem, and an accelerated, more flexible response to changing business goals and strategies. VMControl Enterprise Edition adds the ability to import, capture, and deploy virtual appliances quickly and easily, with centralized management of virtual appliance assets, and provides a workload-optimized approach to computing, by enabling the management of system pools.


Product Highlights
  • A simple interface and set of management tasks are provided to manage the life cycle and capacity of one or more system pools
  • System pool total aggregate capacity and utilization can be monitored and viewed in the IBM Systems Director dashboard as special type of system, eliminating the need to monitor the individual member systems
  • Open standard OVF images can be deployed and dynamically placed on the most appropriate resources within the pool
  • Storage can be assigned to and associated with a system pool, allowing for dynamic provisioning and enablement for virtual server mobility operations
  • Running virtual machines can be moved between the member systems within the pool with no disruption to the running workloads
  • Increased availability and resilience can be provided on a workload-by-workload basis
  • Automation of management actions is configurable, allowing for incremental levels of sophistication on a per-workload basis
