  • On April 30, developerWorks will launch 2 trial experiences designed to offer our developer community the opportunity to experience the benefits of PureSystems first hand – at no charge!.An online trial of PureSystems patterns in the IBM SmartCloud - Provides developers a quick and simple way to try patterns by developing or deploying their own applications in the cloud. while developing skills. .IBM Virtual Pattern Kit for Developers - Provides base capabilities to install locally, so that ISV or large enterprise pattern or plug-in developers can gain experience with PureSystems. Extend existing patterns or construct new ones, then optionally contribute these patterns to the PureSystems Centre..

  • IBM PureApplication System: A Platform System Built-for- Cloud That Simplifies Lifecycle Deployment and Management of Applications Install, Config, Tune:Expert integrated: Up and running in less than 4 hours1Platform for Deploy: applications Deploy a 3-tier web application in under 15  Application server minutes2 and automatically scale in  Database services minutes3  Compute (x86 or POWER) Manage:  Storage Concurrent management of 1000+ VM’s  Networking on a single W1500-608 system4Platform Optimize: management Up to 60%betterBuilt-in expertise – price/performance running typical web and database applications (over a Infrastructure, competitor’s configuration)5 platform, and Application Platform application patterns Automatic throughput improvement of up to Delivering Platform Services 2.3X for data intensive applications1) Based upon testing of the IBM PureApplication System W1500-96 with time measured from powering on the system to when it is ready to support application deployments2) Based upon testing of the IBM PureApplication System W1500-192 deploying a single Virtual Application Pattern consisting of 2 WAS VMs, a DB2 VM, and updating the Elastic Load Balancer (ELB). The WAS VMs were allocated 4 vCPUs, 4 GB of memory and 12 GB of disk while the DB2 VM was allocated 8 vCPUs, 6 GB of memory and two virtual disks of 12 GB and 4 GB.3) Based upon testing, under various workload conditions, of the IBM PureApplication System W1500-192 automatically scaling a Virtual Application Pattern consisting of WAS VMs by adding an addtional WAS VM4) Based upon testing of the IBM PureApplication System W1500-608 (9.7 TB Ram, 6.4 TB SSD, 48 TB HDD, 2.6GHz Sandy Bridge Processors). VMs were deployed using the Virtual System Pattern methodology and were deployed as a WAS 8.5 five-node cluster that deploys 5 virtual machines consisting of one deployment manager, 3 custom WebSphere nodes and 1 IBM HTTP Server. Each VM had default CPU and memory settings of 1 virtual CPU and 2 GB of memory5) Based on IBM internal tests of the IBM PureApplication System W1500-96 compared to results of testing of a competitor’s configuration (previous version; no longer available) executing an online JEE trading application workload in a controlled laboratory environment and a 3 year total cost of acquisition (based on US list prices). The cost calculation compares the average cost per request. 3 year total cost of acquisition includes expected hardware, software, service & support. IBMs internal workload studies are not benchmark applications, nor are they based on any benchmark standard. As such, customer applications, differences in the stack deployed, and other systems variations or testing conditions may produce different results and may vary based on actual configuration, applications, specific queries and other variables in a production environment. Users of this document should verify the applicable data for their specific environment6) Up to 2.3X performance, measured in transactions per second (TPS), of a Virtual System Pattern consisting of a disk I/O intensive application workload based upon testing of IBM PureApplication System W1500-96 when IBM Storwize "Easy Tier" capability leverages solid state disk (SSD) for frequently accessed data versus the same workload running on hard disk drives (HDD) prior to automated optimization
  • The Value of Workload-Aware Management: Built-in Expertise Workload-Aware Management  E.g. PureApplication System  Deep value out of the box  Configure middleware with no scripting through  Connect middleware components in patterns multi-server topology  Environment is “modeled” by pattern creators, not  Configure high availability “scripted” by users  Policy-based elasticity  Patterns available in PureSystems Centre for  Ongoing lifecycle management select IBM, ISV, and 3rd  Middleware-level monitoring party products  …all without scripting!  E.g. PureFlex System General Purpose Management  Represents “commodity deployment” capability  Provision storage, VMs, VLANs, etc.  Requires user to implement  Runbook automation (scripts) scripts, own part of the process  Infrastructure level monitoring  Broad coverage: handles the “everything else” Most clients will need a mix of both
  • What Can I Run on Pure Application System?Entitled Optimized for PureApplication System Integrated Value Pre- Pre-Entitled and Pre-Optimized Middleware Patterns (Included on the System) Pre-Optimized IBM Middleware and ISV Patterns (Available for Additional Purchase) Breadth of Coverage Custom-built Patterns (Pattern-creation Tools Included) Anything else that will run on a supported OS (Runbook Automation or manual install on RHEL 6.2)

  • How Does Pattern-based Management Improve IT? Scripted Install Pattern Based Management  Application-aware patterns Scripted install (a.k.a. runbook understand how individual automation) approaches execute a components interact in a multi- static set of instructions server environmentAfter deployment of individual After deployment, a multi- components, there is further work required to server environment is available, assemble a multi-server environment and with a running app install appsScaling requires separate scripts, or Due to product-specific context of follow-up manual work, introducing how to scale an environment, is more configuration drift flexible in growing/shrinking

  • What’s Physically in the Box?Networking BNT top of rack switches Network bandwidth (trunked 10 gb ethernet) 320 gb out of top of rack 160 gb between chassis 40 gb within each chassisStorage V7000 storage controllers 48 TB HDD storage (80x600GB, 43TB usable) 6.4 TB SSD storage (16x400GB, 5TB usable)Compute Capacity 3 PureFlex chassis in a 42U rack Intel 2.6Ghz compute nodes w/ 2 sockets, 16 cores, and 256 GB memory each (6/12/24/38 nodes in S/M/L/XL)Power 4 redundant PDUs (only 2 required to power full rack)
  • Built-in Expertise: Hardware High AvailabilityManagement Nodes Both run in active-passive mode, when a failure occurs the IP address is assigned to the new active oneNetwork Controllers Switches and cabling are redundant (2 of each). Failure of 1 leads to reduced bandwidth, not serviceStorage Controllers All storage volumes are accessible from each controller If one fails, the other handles all I/OStorage SSD storage is configured in RAID 5 array + spares HDD storage is configured in RAID 5 array + sparesCompute Nodes (ITE) Management system will route around failed DIMMs or cores yielding reduced capacity (server rebalance) If entire node fails, VMs can be moved elsewhere (workload evacuation)
  • Divide and Isolate Your Physical Resources ThroughCloud Groups Use for: Limiting resource allocated to a particular user or group Isolating applications or stages (i.e. dev/test vs. production) Internal networks are isolated between cloud groups Automated rebalancing based on priority Cloud Group Types Full compute nodes Dedicated physical cores Shared physical cores Consolidated (fine grained virtual cores) Service Policies Energy Conservation High Availability
  • Integration by Design: User & Group ManagementUsers & Groups are able to be used to: Restrict access to resources such as: Individual patterns (great for ensuring consistency within teams) Specific pools of hardware, storage, IP addresses Restrict rights such as: Create/Modify pattern Deploy pattern Report usage For showback/chargeback
