Deploying a real world distributed software solution can be complex and challenging. Typically, the software stack in each machine is composed of multiple software layers and the deployment is distributed over a cluster of machines, making software installation and configuration time consuming and potentially error-prone. Using IBM® Tivoli® Provisioning Manager with virtual appliances can vastly simplify this deployment process. This article describes how, with an IBM WebSphere® Application Server example that could have you create and capture a composite virtual appliance, customize, package, and deploy the solution in less than ten minutes.
