In the IBM® PureApplication™ System environment, a virtual application pattern is the critical element that allows a user to rapidly set up and manage cloud application infrastructure; a virtual application pattern describes an application, and employs the tools to build the appropriate infrastructure for the application and then deploys the application to that infrastructure. IBM PureApplication System virtual application patterns are the captured essence of years of application-infrastructure-deployment experience and best practices. Virtual application patterns encapsulate optimized solutions of multiple middleware elements to host specific types of application workloads. In this article, the authors introduce you to virtual application patterns and their place in the ecosystem, describe their components and functions, and provide a basic look at how to create and use a virtual application pattern.
