This book includes an introduction to cloud computing and how the WebSphere CloudBurst appliance fits into business today. It presents the features and benefits of using the WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance and the advantages of using PowerVM. It provides the steps required to implement WebSphere CloudBurst appliance with PowerVM.
