The DBMS placement in Cloud Solutions based on Tivoli Provisioning Manager (TPM) / Service Automation Manager (TSAM) / Service Delivery Manager (ISDM), plays a significant role into overall product function, performance, and how this relates to the evolving workload.
A typical setup approach is to install TPM/TSAM with the DBMS co-located.
This is the default setup option in the TSAM installation and TSAM-VM-image which is included in the ISDM solution.
Over time, based on increasing workload, capacity planning, or production requirements, it may be desirable to move the local database to a remote node, with the goal to achieve greater scale and to exploit additional resources.
A white paper is available for this purpose in the Integrated Service Management Library.
The referenced paper, has been recently updated to version 2.4, and describes how to relocate the DBMS in existing TPM / TSAM / ISDM solutions.
