Will containers kill VMs? There are no winners in this debate

IBM LPARs are not containers, at least on Power. They are full blown OS instances, so are Virtual Machines, not containers.

On System Z, there may be slightly more debate, because of the way that linux (in particular) instances effectively can have shared OS code (similar to read only shared text segments for UNIX processes) for different instances of the same Linux VM.

The AIX feature most like BSD Jails is WPARs, especially when used with WLM.
