SUSE has announced its full support for KVM as part of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) for z Systems and LinuxONE starting with SLES12 SP2 on March 1, 2017.
The KVM support is part of existing and new subscriptions of SLES for LinuxONE with no additional charge for KVM.
KVM has been available as part of SLES for LinuxONE as a technology preview. Due to KVM’s strategic importance, along with growing adoption among LinuxONE customers, SUSE announced full support of KVM within SLES for LinuxONE.
SUSE has collaborated with IBM for more than 20 years to make SLES the perfect guest operating system on IBM servers. SLES for LinuxONE is a top customer choice for secure and reliable IBM z/VM server virtualization, and the support for KVM in SLES for LinuxONE makes the advantages of LinuxONE computing more attractive and accessible to customers experienced with Linux and KVM.
KVM from SUSE for LinuxONE offers enterprises an open source solution while taking advantage of the robust scalability, reliability and security that is inherent to the LinuxONE platform. As KVM is an option on many Linux systems today, the knowledge to operate KVM is the same on LinuxONE. You can manage KVM to allow for over-commitment of system resources to optimize the virtualized environment. In addition, KVM can help make platform mobility easier with its live relocation capabilities, which enable you to move virtual machines (VMs) and workloads between multiple instances of KVM without incurring downtime.
