Power Campus is all about POWER and AIX. We want to support you in using POWER systems and AIX. We have offers in three areas:

 

1. AIX-Talk: In a series of videos we discuss interesting topics for you. In addition to topics of daily AIX administration, more advanced topics such as POWER virtualization or PowerHA administration are covered in detail. The videos can help with further education, but also with specific tasks.

2. Tools: To simplify the administration of managed systems and LPARs, we have developed the command-line based LPAR tool. With this you can manage any number of LPARs and managed systems centrally from the command line in a simple and, above all, fast way. We also offer useful tools for OS update and OS migration.

3. Consulting: Of course we can also support you on site if required.

AIX-Talk

AIX Talk is about videos about AIX administration, PowerHA clusters, and power virtualization. The videos are divided into the following categories depending on the topic:

  • Daily Administration (about 20 videos, about 15 hours)
  • Advanced Administration
  • Basic Virtualization
  • Basic PowerHA
  • Advanced Virtualization
  • Advanced PowerHA

In the area of ​​”AIX-Talk Free” some videos can be viewed freely.

Access to the videos in one category can be purchased for a period of one year. The videos can then be viewed as often as you like during this period. In particular, you can freshen up your knowledge by watching videos you’ve already watched at a later date. Likewise, it is natural, if you are faced with a specific task, to watch the corresponding video (even several times) which explains how the task can be performed.

For corporate customers, each user must be specified separately and unlocked. In particular it is not allowed that an account is used by more than one person.

The Daily Administration category is complete and is available for purchase.

Tools

We have some professional tools to offer:

  • LPAR tool
  • Patch machine for AIX OS updates (TL and SP updates)
  • Migration machine for AIX OS upgrades (for example, AIX 6.1 -> 7.1 or 7.2)

About us

For several decades we have been working on projects with IBM Power Systems and virtualization. This includes, in particular, the secure handling of AIXAdvanced Interactive Executive (known?). Since there are an incredible number of things to know that we constantly encounter in everyday administration, we want to introduce you to as many as possible. Of course, also current. Since both of us are also lecturers for everything related to IBM Power technology, it was clear that we will launch a video series. Of course we would like feedback from you, as well as suggestions for topics are welcome!

Future topics are:

  • VIO-server
  • PowerHA
  • Tools

Not everything will remain free, but also in this area is constantly published new stuff.
