In the 1960s, computers housed in data centers were few in number and this resource was very expensive. As a result utilization of those compute resources was kept very high. In order to optimize the utilization of those resources for different business purposes and to facilitate the ever increasing number of users, IBM invented and engineered virtualization and built these capabilities into the very essence of mainframes, and has continued to deliver innovative mainframe virtualization solutions for decades. More recently, some of these capabilities were extended to IBM’s UNIX Systems (Power Systems) using PowerVM for virtualization of an entire system or within Logical Partitions (LPARs).
