Upcoming European Video Chat: Understanding the Patterns of Expertise – Creating a new step on the virtual technology continuum

21. Juli 2014 Posted by Yathish Kumar

(This is a guest entry posted on behalf of Kerstin Olasik)

Organizations have a continuum of choices for increasing the efficiency of application development and deployment in virtual and cloud environments. This continuum, including virtual appliances, virtual systems and virtual application patterns, provides increasing levels of value.

IBM PureSystems Virtual Application Patterns are designed to deliver proven expertise, enabling capabilities that are essential for developing and deploying applications into virtual environments and the cloud. They also go beyond development and deployment to include automated lifecycle services, with patterns providing policy-based management, monitoring and maintenance.

A panel of experts will discuss help you understand the patterns of expertise better on July 24, 2014 (1:15 – 2:00 PM CEST).

The panel includes:

  • Georg Ember: Leading Technical Sales Professional – IBM PureSystems SWG
  • Mark Aichholz: Manager Technical Sales – zTivoli ISM and Workload optimized Systems

You can also questions or post comments on Twitter using the #IBMPureChat tag during the video chat.

You can watch the session live below here during the video chat:

Isolation and multi-tenancy in the IBM PureApplication System – Cloud Groups are the NEW Virtual Systems

9. April 2014 Posted by Yathish Kumar

(This is a guest entry posted on behalf of Georg Ember)

Almost any application running in the cloud is designed to share resources. Virtualization is the key enabler for cloud computing in integrated or converged systems. Applications run in the cloud as workloads that share system resources, such as CPU, memory and networking.  However, there are legal or organizational requirements where workloads must be isolated from each other and the key question is: What type of isolation is the right way to protect the application environments from each other?

Isolation (also as know as multi-tenancy) is a key requirement for cloud computing. An application deployed into a cloud environment must be able to run independently and separately from other applications in the cloud. Each application requires it to move traffic along the network and protect its data as well.

Isolation of applications and data, by physical separation or by virtualization within an integrated system, may satisfy security requirements and ensure that a failure of one application will not cause the failure of other applications. While the data has to be kept isolated, in many cases, other departments within a company are not allowed to see deployed resources (Virtual Machines) of other environments.

An ideal solution to implement such an application and virtual systems isolation is to exploit the multi-tenancy features of the IBM PureApplication System.

A comfortable and easy way to isolate LAN, SAN and Server resources, on a physical as well as a logical level in PureApplication System, is to use the concept of Cloud Groups and environment profiles.

Using the isolation techniques that are incorporated within the IBM PureApplication System can help minimize business risks and increase the availability. By selecting nodes to Cloud Groups which are placed in separate chassis modules, the performance and availability of a Cloud Group can be greatly increased.


If you are required to isolate applications and data not only on a logical level, the concept of Cloud Groups in the PureApplication Systems is the right choice for you. You do not need to acquire multiple physical systems, except for high availability or disaster recovery reasons, when you need to separate multiple application environments in a multi-tenant infrastructure. PureApplication System offers the concept of dedicated Cloud Groups.

IBM PureApplication System Cloud Groups physically separate:

  • Compute Nodes (server nodes), across IBM Flex Chassis,
  • LANs by defining VLANs (on dedicated LAN ports) and IP groups (IP address ranges),
  • Services running on the System (so called shared services), each Cloud Group can have “private” services running, without affecting other Cloud Groups. Examples of shared services are monitoring, OS updates, Load Balancers and clustered file systems services, just to name a few.
  • Workload (deployment) users, where each user belongs to one or more environment profiles, can deploy an application to the designated Cloud Group, without seeing other deployed resources from other users or being seen by other users on the Cloud Groups.


Companies normally separate environments according to application development lifecycle. The typical divisions are:

  • Development (DEV): An environment used for developing applications.
  • Testing (TEST): Used for testing applications.
  • Production (PROD): Used for running applications; this is the realm of business or end users.

Each of these environments typically runs on totally independent sets of hardware and networks to avoid cross-environment issues. But, when using Cloud Groups in the PureApplication System, application environments are totally isolated from each other, if required, even by the users and shared services they use. Consecutively, you do not need to acquire multiple physical systems – one PureApplication System does it all for isolation of application environments. There is full isolation and protection in any layer of the stack.

Working on my hobby project, my first iOS app “Team Calendar for Notes”

26. Februar 2014 Posted by Stephan Kopp

In the past years (almost 15 years…oh, my goodness), I’ve always developed in parallel to my infrastructure projects some system or migration tools based on LotusScript. But no real application development and not object oriented at all.
End of last year I felt a little bit tired with my job and all the “boring” Notes/Domino stuff, so I came to the conclusion to start something completely different (at least in my free time, not a new job). When I’m looking around at home, well it looks like an Apple Store, so why shouldn’t I try out also iOS development…?
After walking through the great Stanford course Developing iOS Apps and playing a little bit around with some examples in the course, my interest was awoken. I spent many weekends and night hours in my Xcode projects and had a lot of fun in doing this… Sad but true, but it is many years ago since I felt such an enthusiasm.

But my roots are Notes/Domino based, so I didn’t went too far away from that and decided trying to create an iOS app for our internal team calendar. This Notes database collects all non private calendar entries from our team and provides a single point of information when looking for available times or just to see where my colleagues are around and what they are currently doing. Yes I know, that may be a “privacy concern” in many companies, but most of my colleagues find it very useful and so I do.

The app is not yet finished (maybe it will never be), it has not a really nice and fancy UI and I’m still undecided whether to release it to the App-Store or not. But I want to share some early thoughts and screenshots, maybe someone would like to give me some feedback.

All you need is a small Notes database which collects and updates automatically all configured calendars.

  • The app synchronizes automatically in background with this database or manually
  • You can define the range of synchronized data in the app, but also in the Notes database
  • Login credentials will be stored encrypted in the app

Some points on my implementation list, but not yet done:

  • Include Apple Maps to show the location of your colleagues if possible
  • Direct connection to the REST API to allow same functionality without a separate Notes database
  • Select the Users you want to synchronize on your device
  • Include more information about the users to allow mailto or call functionality
  • Localization for different languages and time zones
  • iPad version

Any feedback and recommendations are very welcome! More details on
