Rapid WebSphere Application Server Provisioning with WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance
Cloud computing is a concept that describes the pooling of computing resources in a "Cloud" to provide a single source of computing power to multiple users. The cloud manager provides a self-service deployment interface that maintains permissions, information about cloud artifacts such as virtual images and patterns, and resource usage (for chargeback). The WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance is a secure hardware appliance that represents such a cloud manager. It optimizes the configuration, deployment, and management of WebSphere Application Server environments in a cloud.
