Introduction to pSeries Provisioning

pSeries provisioning is a term for effectively enabling automation tools to allocate, de-allocate, and re-allocate resources for users, applications, or even functionality within an application, thereby providing the most cost-effective delivery of computing resources to an organization. Provisioning can be a manual process, but there is a point where automation becomes essential. Although automation and integration of the provisioning process is a custom effort for each company, it can involve the scripted provisioning tools and automation becomes more dynamic, and the environment becomes more complex for IT professional. By using provisioning, you can provide users with an environment where resources are dynamically adjusted, given the demands of the business.

This IBM Redbook summarizes the pSeries provisioning concept. It highlights the IBM on demand business concepts, IBM Tivoli Provisioning Manager and pSeries automation workflows, pSeries provisioning tools and sample scenarios. It also describes how pSeries provisioning is positioned in an on demand world.

This book describes pSeries provisioning components such as Network Installation Manager (for client installation), RMC (for monitoring), DLPAR (for resource allocation, de-allocation, and re-allocation), HACMP (for high availability), AIX 5L (for accounting), CSM (for cluster management), and CUoD (for automated capacity on demand upgrade). In combination with IBM Tivoli Provisioning Manager, they provide tools and workflows for provisioning resources.
