"Linux on POWER (LoP) was introduced in 2005 with the introduction of Advanced Power Virtualization (APV) and IBM System p5. Its introduction allowed users of the IBM System p architecture to install Linux natively on top of IBM's logical partitioning (LPAR) technology. In doing so, it provided users with the ability to use virtualization features on System p, similar to what they could do with IBM's brand of UNIX: AIX. These features included micro-partitioning, Virtual IO Servers (VIOS) and supported advanced-level features, such as Capacity on Demand (CoD). It even is supported by newer innovations available on the Power6, such as Live Partition Mobility, which allows workloads to be dynamically moved from one System p server to another with no downtime; and shared dedicated capacity, which optimizes the use of spare processor cycles.
