The IBM Migration Services for System i and LPAR portfolio is designed to simplify the process of reconfiguring, adding to or upgrading your IBM System i server environment with logical partitioning (LPAR). IBM can help you consolidate servers, space and/or applications; test your applications; balance your workload across partitions; or make LPAR changes to your system-all with minimal disruption to your business.
These services can enable you to increase productivity and lower your total cost of ownership (TCO) through increased hardware utilisation resulting from partitioning. Increased utilisation is necessary when software does not scale well across large numbers of processors. Plus, having more productive servers can free up your IT staff to focus on other business-critical activities.
