If you would like to try out IBM SmartCloud Provisioning 1.2 core functionalities but you are worried you do not have time to spend installing it or you do not have enough hardware, you can download a special demo package from Integrated Service Management Library
It gets installed in a single physical box.
The system must use x86_64 processors that support virtualization.
In addition to that you need at least 3 GB memory and 30 GB disk space
The required operating system for this installation is Linux CentOS 6.0 64 bits.
In addition to that the following packages are required:
Then the installer configures the physical box as compute node, storage node, pxe server and dhcp server, then it creates a virtual image (the hypervisor is KVM) that acts as second storage node, webconsole, web-adminconsole, webservice, rest server, hbase and zookeeper.
Further installation details are available in the readme downloadable with the package.
