The Power Systems for AIX – Virtualization I: Implementing Virtualization (AN30G) course provides an overview of the PowerVM edition’s features on POWER processor-based systems. It explains the new features and benefits of virtualization including processor virtualization, Virtual I/O Server, and virtual devices, such as virtual Ethernet, virtual SCSI, and virtual Fibre Channel adapters. Basic and advanced configurations of the Virtual I/O Server and its clients are discussed including various availability options.
This course provides lectures and hands-on labs in an instructor lead course environment, either in a face-to-face classroom or in a live virtual classroom environment.

The AN30G course is intended for system administrators, technical support personnel, and business partners responsible for implementing LPARs on IBM Power Systems servers.
You should have:
- advanced system administration experience with AIX 6 or AIX 7. This prerequisite can be met by attending one of the following courses:
- Power Systems for AIX II: AIX Implementation and Administration (AN12AU)
- Power Systems for AIX III: Advanced Administration and Problem Determination (AN15AU)
- AIX Jumpstart for UNIX Professionals (AN14AU)
- Alternatively, you must have equivalent AIX and LPAR skills.
- General TCP/IP knowledge is strongly recommended. This prerequisite can be met by attending TCP/IP for AIX Administrators (AN21AU).
- You are also expected to have logical partition administration skills on POWER6 or POWER7 processor-based systems, which can be obtained by attending Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN11AU).
