Webinar on private clouds, including stuff I’ve been working on

There’s a DB2 Chat with the Lab on Wednesday next week which will cover, among other things, the DB2 images I’ve developed for IBM Workload Deployer over this past while. I recommend checking it out, as the speakers know their stuff and this is a pretty cool product.

Easily Deploy Database Workloads on Private Clouds

As more and more businesses look for ways to reduce costs within IT, their research typically discovers cloud computing. However Public Clouds are not an option for many enterprise workloads and applications with strict security and privacy requirements. Organizations with such needs can benefit from building Private Clouds within their own data centers. In this webcast we will look at a fast path to deploying private clouds for database workloads.

We will specifically look at instant provisioning of DB2 systems and databases in a private cloud infrastructure using the IBM Workload Deployer (IWD), previously called the WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance. We will also look at how IWD can be easily used for implementing complete web application patterns with web servers, application servers (WebSphere), and DB2 database servers with high availability options.

To learn more, please join experts from the IBM labs – Sal Vella, Leon Katsnelson, Rav Ahuja, and Chris Gruber.

Presentation charts will be available from ibm.com/db2/labchats just before the webcast starts.
