That’s a no brainer. AIX and IBM i happily coexist on the same platform. AIX is just another partition. VIOS will virtualize AIX and IBM i together both storage and Ethernet. Just requires doing a little work on the HMC to create the partition, and virtual storage devices, add the host on the SAN, create LUNs and you’re done. You can do that on your P8 now if you wish. As long as you have sufficient CPU/Memory/Storage, 90% of what you need is already there. Add those LUNS to your replication scheme, and that’s done too, although you don’t need to if you don’t want to.

Need to upgrade our primary server running iBMi and probably will go to a
Power 10 S1022.
Currently running a Power 8 using IBM Storwize V5030 SANS.

I was asked by another part of the business who run AIX on Power 6, if we
are getting new kit, could we host them also to save buying two new servers
(production and DR). Looking around it seems we could use PowerVM and run
both AIX and IBMi LPARs and share the fibre channel cards to the SAN (SAN
has enough storage).

There is a 900 page Red Book on PowerVM but that's a difficult read :-(
Hoping to know if any people on the mailing list are doing this and what
their experiences are. Thanks
