IBM® provides various OS images that have been tested with imbedded pattern contents and are pre-optimized for performance and security considerations. However, in some cases you may want to use your own OS image. You can onboard your own operating system image in to IBM PureApplication® System and transform that image by adding capabilities required for pattern-based deployment.
The IBM OS Pattern Kit enables you to turn your own OS image into an image that can be used for pattern-based deployment from PureApplication System. The platforms currently supported are AIX, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and Microsoft Windows.
