Importing Power LPARs into Skytap

Though there is a large variety of public templates in Skytap, your company may have unique requirements. In these cases, you can export your pre-configured Power A CPU architecture that supports IBM i, AIX, and Linux (on Power) in Skytap Cloud. LPARs and import them as Skytap VMs.

Notes

When you import VM files into Skytap:
  • You verify that your LPARs meet the import requirements.
  • Your files are packaged together as an import job and uploaded to a Skytap FTP server.
  • The Skytap import services copy the files from the import job and transforms them into a fully functional Skytap environment.

Once the virtual environment is created, you can begin using Skytap features with it.
