CDNET- IBM touts automation in PureSystems
Big Blue says new line of integrated systems offers more flexibility, with support for four operating systems and five virtualization hypervisors.
One of the software differentiators in PureSystems is software IBM calls Patterns of Expertise. For instance, IBM Patterns automate tasks such as configurations, deployments and upgrades. ISV Patterns provides a catalog of applications from more than 100 independent software vendors optimized for PureSystems. ISV Patterns is akin to a data center app store. Customer Patterns allows companies to automate knowledge of how their proprietary applications run into PureSystems.
Among the key claims:
- Architecting, procuring and deploying infrastructure for Web applications can be completed in 10 days instead of months.
- PureSystems can be split into thousands of virtual machines to save money on power and software licensing.
- Storage layers can be provisioned quicker and automatically tier data based on usage and importance.
- Integration allows for private cloud deployments on the fly. The PureSystems family is designed to be a cloud in a box with built in security and no single point of failure and self-service provisioning technology.
