80 Logical Processor Support

We in z/VM know the demand for processing resources continues to increase; and we know that many of our clients benefit from the economies of scale provided by z/VM. With that in mind, we have advanced the scaling capability again, increasing the limit of 64 logical processors to 80 logical processors. When combined with Single System Image (SSI) clusters, this can provide a 320 logical processor environment with the four SSI-members. Clients looking for increased processing capability should look at this latest enhancement.
