Analysis of usefulness of Virtualization Engine to improve efficiency of computer systems

Maciej Młyński

Abstract


Article has shown analysis of usefulness of Virtualization Engine Version 2.1 for improvement of efficiency of computer systems. The Virtualization Engine is a complex utility composed of IBM Direction, Enterprise Workload Manager and Virtualization Engine Console. All of the modules are dedicated for efficiency of management of computer systems. This article has shown also all modules and concepts of unity of managements of system infrastructure such as: CIM server, SOA architecture, ARM (Application Response Measurement) standard.

Keywords
