IBM i OVA creation command similar to "create_ova" on AIX
With such a command migrations to cloud could be easier, specially if we could send the file with SSH or a mounted NFS filesystem.
When you need to migrate a system with a different language you need to create an OVA, but today you need PowerVC, and most clients don't have this product. With this command we can migrate to the cloud from inside the OS, without external tools and without hardware requirement beyond the storage for the image.
