I will demonstrate in this video how to port a virtual application pattern created in IBM SmartCloud Application Services (currently in pilot) to the IBM PureApplication System or IBM Workload Deployer.
Behind the scenes, IBM SmartCloud Application Services — and more specifically the IBM SmartCloud Application Workload Service — is using IBM Workload Deployer. Because the IBM Workload Deployer can be used as an appliance, or a software image, or embedded in the IBM PureApplication System, the portability between all these IBM products occcurs naturally.
Please watch this video to see how easily you can port virtual application patterns from IBM SmartCloud Application Workload Service and the IBM PureApplication System.
And watch this video to see the portability between IBM SmartCloud Application Workload Service and the IBM Workload Deployer.
Conclusion: Using IBM SmartCloud Application Services you will not loose your work when it comes time to port your pattern to another environment managed either by IBM Workload Deployer or by the IBM PureApplication System.
