IBM Workload Deployer, previously known as WebSphere Cloudburst Appliance, is a "full-stack" elastic application platform. It is a secure hardware appliance that provides Platform-as-a-Service offering in a private cloud. With virtualization, standardization and automation, Workload Deployer delivers value by lowering costs and increasing business agility as higher hardware utilization rates are reached in virtualized environments. The most universally realized value is consistency resulting in reduced time to market.
Workload Deployer allows application middleware environments to be configured once, and then catalogued into a list of ready-to-run certified environments. It allows increased repeatability and reduction of costly errors by allowing you to customize environments once, capture them, and redeploy them at the click of a button.This catalogue can then be shared across teams to help guarantee that each time a particular environment is dispensed, it is identical. Virtual applications and Virtual Systems allows the flexibility to choose between deep automation and control.
