IBM® Bluemix® Local System allows clients to run cloud-native services, cloud-enabled applications, and open pattern automations concurrently on their on-premise system.

Bluemix Local System is the evolution of the IBM PureApplication® System Intel™ based offerings. Expanded system capabilities provide:

  • Cloud-native workloads that run on Bluemix Local
  • Cloud-enabled, middleware workloads that run on PureApplication Software
  • Open pattern automation (open patterns) that are built with Heat to automate provisioning, managing, and monitoring open pattern workloads

The BlueMix Local System is available as two different configurations, each with a full range of models:

  • Bluemix Local System W3500 models: Ideally suited to CPU intensive workloads and is optimized for price performance by extending the capabilities of the PureApplication System W2500 and W1500 appliances.
  • Bluemix Local System W3550 models: High-performance system design that is targeted for workloads that require high IOPS and low latency provided by solid state storage and fibre channel connectivity.

Options for storage expansion for all Bluemix Local System models are available to deliver additional storage for Bluemix Local Systems:

  • One to three W3500 Bluemix Local System Storage® Expansions can be added to a W3500 system rack to provide up to 72 TB of additional storage. An additional 17 W3500 storage expansion options can be installed into an adjacent rack to provide up to 480 TB if additional storage. Clients must supply the additional rack and power distribution units with capacity to power the Bluemix Local System Storage Expansion options.
  • One to three W3550 Bluemix Local System Storage Expansions can be added to a 3550 Bluemix Local System to provide up to to 150 TB of additional storage.

Overview
Bottom rule

Bluemix Local System delivers a robust and efficient infrastructure to manage complex workloads and the tasks and processes that are invoked by the workloads. The following workloads are supported:

  • Cloud-native workloads that run on Bluemix Local
  • Cloud-enabled application workloads that run on PureApplication Software:
    • Integrated middleware, such as IBM WebSphere® Application Server, IBM DB2®, IBM Business Process Management, and hypervisor images.
    • Application-centric workloads that are created by using pattern types, such as web application patterns, database application patterns, and topology patterns.
    • Open pattern automations (open patterns), which are built with Heat, that can be used to automate the provisioning, management, and monitoring of your open pattern workloads

PureApplication Software can be purchased separately or as part of a PureApplication Software Suite, a bundle that includes WebSphere Application Server and DB2. For information, refer to Software Announcement 216-347, dated July 26, 2016.

Each system provides the following capabilities:

  • Scalable infrastructure, which includes:
    • Hardware that is optimized by workloads
    • Virtualized storage
    • Networking designed to be efficient
  • Integrated delivery. Each model is
    • Factory-assembled and ready for installation
    • Tuned for maximum efficiency of data, storage, workload execution, and retrievability
  • Single application to administer and manage application deployment

Many organizations find that running cloud-native applications on-premise in a local private cloud platform is beneficial for a number of reasons. Running cloud-native applications in a local private cloud provides ready access to on-premises data and services. This minimizes latency and improves performance while allowing clients to keep their data onpremises for regulatory, security, and privacy reasons. The Bluemix Local System provides management, security, and high availability for specific application environment.

At the same time, clients who need to maximize their existing enterprise applications can move these workloads to cloud environments to optimize their investment and help fund new innovation. Workloads, such as business process management, business intelligence, application servers, web portal, and web commerce. are complex to deploy and manage. Many clients need to automate as much of the application lifecycle as possible. Running cloud-enabled applications on-premises in a local private cloud provides the management, control, and resiliency that many organizations require for these mission-critical applications.

Open patterns are patterns built with open technology:

  • OpenStack Heat orchestration

  • Open source automation scripting, which include:

    • Salt
    • Ansible
    • Chef
    • Puppet
    • Operating systems (Red Hat Enterprise Linux™ and Ubuntu)
    • KVM hypervisor

Key benefits of open patterns include:

  • Portability
  • Speed of innovation
  • Vast development and support
  • Consistency of user experience
  • Breadth of content
  • Ease of integration

Building a custom cloud to address these requirements and distinct types of application environments is complex, but is required so the clients' business can be agile and stay ahead of competition. Bluemix Local System, which is installed by IBM, addresses configuration, integration, and management, by delivering a consistent environment that is fully integrated and optimized to accelerate deployment of the clients' traditional applications, cloud applications, and open patterns with a single point of support. This allows clients to focus on building innovative, custom applications, and services.

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 lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
