What is an iSeries LPAR?

An iSeries LPAR is a complete iSeries system, virtualized within another, larger system. Why would you want to have an iSeries system running inside another system? Well, it turns out that LPARs are useful for a number of reasons. For example, they allow developers to:

  • Run multiple operating systems
  • Test software on different platforms
  • Backup a system and have it ready for rapid deployment
  • Archive legacy systems
