POWER9 Brings Changes to the HMC
POWER9 Brings Changes to the HMC 

The Hardware Management Console (HMC) is evolving, and you’ll need to adapt. Currently, you can choose from four different options to run your HMC. Of course, there’s the traditional x86-based HMC appliance that you’ve been using since the IBM POWER4 days. Alternatively, you can run a virtualized HMC (vHMC) image in either the VMware, KVM or Xen hypervisors on your own x86 hardware. Or you can run an HMC appliance that’s based on the POWER processor. Finally, you can run a vHMC image in an LPAR on POWER hardware. As with any other workload, the HMC code will be capable of utilizing the strengths of the POWER hardware—including additional threads, greater memory bandwidth and superior performance. Rob McNelly explains what to expect as clients migrate to POWER9 in this article.
