IBM® Systems Director VMControl™ Enterprise Edition utilizes a workload-optimized approach to decrease infrastructure costs and improve service levels. A system pool is a group of virtualized system components (servers, storage and network) that are managed as a single entity, and VMControl Enterprise Edition allows you to manage system pools with the simplicity of managing a single system, which is an essential capability for moving to cloud computing and a dynamic infrastructure.

VMControl Enterprise Edition provides simplified virtualization management, which enables faster problem-solving, a higher return on investment and rapid responses to changing business goals and strategies. IBM Systems Director and VMControl Enterprise Edition work together to help you more effectively utilize your virtual environment. VMControl Enterprise Edition helps you to create and modify system pools using AIX and Linux on Power virtual workloads, make dynamic virtual workload adjustments and move workloads within system pools, resulting in an optimized virtual environment with increased resilience to cope with planned or unplanned downtime.
