Abstract

IBM Tivoli Provisioning Manager dynamically provisions, and deprovisions, server instances. It does so based on the end-to-end service-level achievement that is provided by the IBM Enterprise Workload Manager and coordinated by IBM Tivoli Intelligent Orchestrator.

This IBM Redpaper explains how the integration of Enterprise Workload Manager and Tivoli Intelligent Orchestrator can proficiently and automatically provision systems and application middleware. In doing so, we demonstrate how business goals continue to be achieved, regardless of varying transaction rates, with efficient use of the system resources in an environment. The paper begins with an overview of the products followed by the Enterprise Workload Manager and Tivoli Intelligent Orchestrator provisioning solution components. Then it describes our test environment and the installation and customization that we performed.
