*Imagine a birthday cake graphic*

Happy 30th Birthday, VM! IBM announced its first official VM product on August 2, 1972. That product was VM/370. Who would have known that it would evolve into today's z/VM --a popular, flexible, scalable, interactive system favored by many worldwide. Built on a solid foundation of experience, today's VM is IBM eServer zSeries virtualization technology.
