Description

Simplified disaster recovery in PureApplication System V1.1 offers new capabilities to pair a PureApplication System rack with a dedicated standby rack.1 Replication-based disaster recovery can be achieved in a fraction of the time it would take to set up a traditional disaster recovery environment.

1
Before using the disaster recovery feature to back up third-party software, you should confirm that you have the rights under your third-party licenses.

PureApplication System V1.1 also serves a wider ecosystem of workloads. It adds support for the Microsoft Windows operating system as a guest platform. It also adds improvements to the Plug-in Development Kit (PDK), which is used to create virtual application patterns for use in PureApplication System.

You can complete system management data backup in significantly reduced time with fewer time-blocking system operations like deployments and other system related tasks. Automatic backup and selective restoration of virtual images occur from the workload catalog, helping to improve flexibility for scheduling system management data backups. You can monitor backup progress and receive email alerts with useful statistics when backups are complete.

With the improved elasticity with V1.1, you can specify policies that result in PureApplication System dynamically adding CPU and memory resources, within specified ranges, to cloud groups or individual virtual machines to help meet performance goals.

The following products are delivered as integrated patterns, available for deployment on PureApplication Systems. A purchase of a particular configuration of PureApplication System includes entitlement to run the following products up to the total capacity of that configuration:

WebSphere Commerce Pattern 1.0 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux for x86

A new WebSphere Commerce enterprise pattern designed to speed up the deployment of WebSphere Commerce Enterprise on PureApplication System W1500 is available for WebSphere Commerce Enterprise V7 users. WebSphere Commerce Pattern 1.0 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux for x86 can significantly reduce the deployment time of a three-tier production environment consisting of WebSphere Commerce, WebSphere Application Server, and DB2 database. WebSphere Commerce Pattern embodies the current best practices for WebSphere Commerce deployment. This pattern is available for WebSphere Commerce Enterprise 7.0 clients as additional content for download and on DVD media.

For information about WebSphere Commerce Enterprise V7.0 (5724-I38), refer to Software Announcement 209-362, dated October 27, 2009

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
