Today, IBM is introducing IBM PureApplication 2.2.3. Customers can now deploy and manage VMware virtual machines (VMs) on Bluemix Local System. Updates also bring new disaster recovery capabilities and adds support for private VLANs.
PureApplication Software with Bluemix Local System minimizes time-to-value for deploying and managing enterprise applications. You get enterprise-grade capabilities, like auto-scaling, license management and workload portability.
Check out the new VM capabilities of IBM PureApplication v2.2.3 in this Q&A video:
Want a breakdown of what’s new? PureApplication 2.2.3 upgrades introduces the following new capabilities.
Create and deploy VMs directly with vCenter to Bluemix Local System
VMs are deployed to virtual manager cloud group, a new type of cloud group with dedicated nodes, network definitions and user credential definitions dedicated for running VMware VMs on Bluemix Local System
DR scenarios to maximize application uptime with replication of virtual machine file storage (VMFS) storage between racks
Manage disaster recovery with PureApplication Software workload environments in Bluemix Local System
Create one or more isolated workload environments inside of PureApplication System
Each workload environment includes
Virtualization constructs, including IP groups and environment profiles
User space and permissions
Perform recovery by replicating one or more workload environments across primary and backup PureApplication Systems
Use private VLANs in Bluemix Local System
Divide a primary VLAN into secondary sub-VLANs while keeping existing IP subnet and layer-3 configuration
Leverage enhanced client-server security, more advanced network isolation and multiple levels of communication between VMs. Use them to:
Allow all VMs to access the same backup server on a single VLAN without the VMs to be able to access each other
Securely separate VMs running within the same cloud group but supporting different applications
Secure virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) that prevents workstations from seeing each other on the network
