The IBM PureApplication System is a platform system designed and tuned specifically for transactional web and database applications. Its workload-aware, flexible platform is designed to be
easy to deploy, customize, safeguard and manage.
Get to know the PureApplication System by watching the three product overview videos.
PureApplication System Overview: A game-changing product that provides a powerful and easy to use private cloud that is delivered to your data center already assembled, integrated, and optimized. It builds decades of hardware and software expertise into an easy-to-manage system that dramatically simplifies the development, provisioning, and management of applications in a virtualized private cloud environment. The integrated management tools enable self-service provisioning of elastic workloads, including enterprise applications and databases. The virtual application deployment model provides a simplified, application-centric model for deploying and managing workloads in a highly automated fashion. The virtual system deployment model provides a more flexible, topology-centric model for deploying complex applications in a virtualized environment. The system is optimized for workloads based on IBM middleware, and supports the deployment of custom images containing software from other vendors.
Deployment Models: PureApplication System supports different deployment models, allowing you to select one based on your application needs. You see some of the benefits and trade-offs of the different deployment models in this presentation. While your current applications might not fit in the virtual application model, as you start new projects, you might be able to take advantage of its benefits. Those benefits include higher optimization and quicker time to value. For existing applications that do not fit in the virtual application model, you can use the virtual systems deployment model for significant cost savings. You have the option to create custom images. You can create custom images with the Image Construction and Composition Tool or by using the extend/capture function available in PureApplication System.
Integrated Console Overview: Provides a simple integrated role based console for all tasks. It hides the complexity of the underlying hardware, firmware and system software, allowing you to focus on your workloads and the entire life cycle to manage the workloads. The integrated console has System console for system level tasks, and Workload console for all workload level tasks.
