IBM’s PureApplication products (System, Software and Service) include a sophisticated placement engine that works to manage and optimize factors such as system availability, application availability, CPU usage, and licensing.
But perhaps you’ve found yourself wondering just how, when and why PureApplication makes its placement decisions. Why did this virtual machine get migrated? Why didn’t that one get migrated? To help answer questions like these, Roy Brabson, Hendrik Van Run and I have just published an article describing in detail how virtual machine placement works in PureApplication System, Software and Service. We hope that this satisfies your curiosity!
