We are currently setting up the tpc-c benchmark on the cluster. Tpc-c is the standard benchmark for OnLine Transaction Processing ( http://www.tpc.org/tpcc/ ). We will be doing some test runs on the pureScale cluster and some tuning to see what kind of throughput we can get out of the cluster for typical OLTP workloads . We will start out with 4 nodes first with the default parameters, then start tuning and tweaking. Please let me know if you want to know more?

As with all of the pureSystem family the use of patterns to automate repeatable tasks is a feature of pureData systems.
With pureData here are two types of patterns available:
1) Topology Patterns. Topology patterns will install all of the software required to run pureScale and create the pureScale instance on a number of compute nodes. You can deploy a topology pattern of 2, 4, or 6 nodes. The 2 node topology pattern consists of an instance of 2 members with a cluster caching facilities (CFs) co-located on each of two compute nodes. This is the smallest practical HA installation of Db2. The 4 nodes topology pattern consists of 2 members and 2 CFs on separate compute nodes. The 6 node topology pattern is a 4 member cluster with 2 CFs on separate compute nodes. Of course the more nodes you deploy to the higher the performance and resilience.
2) Database Patterns. A database pattern is essentially a method of storing and reusing database configuration settings. Databases patterns are used to create and configure a database within the instance topology. PureData systems will come with an IBM transaction processing database pattern. You can also "roll your own".
