A week and a half ago, we talked about how IBM PureSystems is a game changer. Today we'll show you four more articles and a demo specific to IBM PureApplication, a workload optimized integrated hardware and software appliance, to help you see how much of a game changer this really is and how you can take advantage of the great new tech called PureSystems.
Preparing for IBM PureApplication System, Part 1: Onboarding applications overview
: This article series helps you understand how to prepare for and maximize the value of IBM PureApplication System in your organization from an application-centric point of view. Part 1 highlights the PureApplication System capabilities as they relate to the application lifecycle. The article also helps you identify and onboard your existing applications as workloads. Think of this article as your roadmap to guide you through the rest of the series.
Preparing for IBM PureApplication System, Part 2: Is your application ready to become virtual?: Part 2 of this article series examines how you can decide which deployment option is best suited for your particular application. Preparing for IBM PureApplication System, Part 3: Choosing a database option: Part 3 of the article series introduces the integrated DB2 database formats that are found in IBM PureApplication System. It describes the different forms of DB2 found in PureApplication System, helps you decide which forms to choose in different situations, and covers some of the recommended best practices using DB2 inside PureApplication System. Preparing for IBM PureApplication System, Part 5: Developing virtual application patterns for IBM Workload Deployer with Rational Application Developer: Part 5 of this article series shows how to combine the software development features of IBM Rational Application Developer with the virtual application pattern assembly capabilities of IBM Workload Deployer to develop cloud applications. With Workload Deployer, you can assemble virtual application patterns consisting of Java EE enterprise applications, Web applications, OSGi applications, and other types of components. However, as an application developer, it is predominantly the source code of the components of the pattern you need to work with the most. The latest integrated features of Rational Application Developer and Workload Deployer will help you develop virtual application patterns from the source code on up.
Lastly, as a nice close out to this post, here's a wonderful tour I found which clearly walks through IBM PureSystems and gives a great view into what it all is and how it can help you!
