IBM PureApplication Systems automate most of the operations work needed for applications, hardware and data center infrastructure, as well as steps in the application development and deployment process and cloud adoption. The PureSystems family comes with the intelligence needed to handle most configuration, upgrade and maintenance tasks.
IBM PureSystems family includes...
- IBM PureFlex System IBM PureFlex System supports infrastructure patterns, IBM PureData System supports infrastructure and platform patterns, and IBM PureApplication System supports all three types.
Supports infrastructure patterns. Combines advanced IBM hardware and software along with infrastructure patterns of expertise. Provides integrated chassis, compute nodes, storage, systems management and networking components.
- PureData System for Transactions
Supports infrastructure and platform patterns. Supports OLTP workloads. Up to 384 cores, 6 TB of memory, 128 TB of storage. Supports Oracle Database applications with minimal change. Supports IBM DB2 database applications with no change.
- IBM PureApplication System
Supports infrastructure, platform, and application patterns. Manage applications and databases in virtual and cloud environments. Applications can be dropped into a preconfigured middleware engine that includes an IBM DB2 database and an IBM WebSphere Application Server. Dynamically adjusts to demand spikes and reallocates system resources automatically. Managed through a single management console.
Examples of IBM infrastructure patterns include:
Database Topology pattern Create, configure and deploy DB2 pureScale database system with built-in redundancy. Storage Management pattern Virtualization and allocation of storage across multiple workloads. Optimized Data Placement pattern Data placement across high-speed/lowerspeed storage based on policies and across multiple workloads. Cloud Group Policy pattern (PureApplication System) Create groups of compute and memory resources managed based on policies and spanning multiple workloads.
In addition to IBM patterns, more than 320 solutions from 275 leading independent software vendor (ISV) partners across a broad set of industries have been optimized and made available in the PureSystems Centre. Examples of application patterns include:
SugarCRM Deployment of a full customer relationship management solution, including required PHP runtime, application components and databases. With the IBM PureApplication System, the administrator simply downloads the SugarCRM application pattern and clicks "deploy". The time required is approximately 10 minutes. IBM Business Intelligence pattern Deploy multitier IBM business intelligence solutions that are highly available and scale elastically with changing demand.
With IBM PureApplication System and patterns, the administrator needs only an application and the business policies that define the organization's desired outcomes for the application. The system automatically optimizes to meet those outcomes, for example, by...
- Set up a specific I/O configuration for optimum data access.
- Make availability settings to ensure continuous uptime
- Automatically responding to spikes in demand
