Whoa, let's not get ahead of ourselves! Here on developerWorks, we often talk about solutions that include virtual software patterns -- but some of you may be wondering what, exactly, a virtual pattern is, and why it's so important.
Time to put the horse before the cart. This week, we explore virtual patterns and show how they can enable you to incorporate existing expertise into your applications and systems. Get started with our slick intro video, which gives you (in 80 seconds!) a high-level overview of virtual application patterns and virtual system patterns: Find out how you can use them to create effective public or private IT systems, and why they're particularly useful in cloud computing environments. Then, get a closer look at the topic with additional videos and articles that explore, in depth, what virtual patterns can do and how they are used in products like IBM Workload Deployer, IBM SmartCloud Enterprise, and IBM PureSystems. (Want more cloud? Stop by our Cloud computing site.)
And once you're equipped with that additional background, you can get your learning horse and cart back on track, and I can quit using 19th-century metaphors.
Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team
