IBM® PureFlex™ System comes with the hardware pre-integrated and the management stack pre-loaded for convenience, but there are a few manual steps you need to do before it can be used to host resilient virtual servers. In this article, the authors explain and show how to set up and deploy a resilient virtual server (in this article, Red Hat's KVM hypervisor is used). The instructions provided are valid for the first release of IBM PureFlex System, including fixpacks. Future releases of PureFlex System should simplify the process.
