Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4/5 2.6/2.6.18 on AIX
We are looking at migrating to the AIX Power6 p550. We would be running our applications which have been developed on RHEL within an LPAR/WPAR on AIX platform.
I am wondering if anyone out there has any experience or history they would like to share about there dealings with this. From appearance everything looks pretty transparent.
As long as these rules are considered it looks transparent
PowerVM™ Lx86 runs most x86 Linux® applications, but PowerVM Lx86 cannot run applications that:
*Directly access hardware devices (e.g. 3D graphics adapters);
