Deploying a virtual software library

IBM WebSphere Commerce Patterns software libraries for multiplatform provide virtualization of a file server to serve software that is required to deploy other patterns. Deploy these virtual system patterns with IBM PureApplication Software, IBM PureApplication System, or IBM PureApplication Service to get a 64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtual machine. After deployment, use the virtualized WebSphere Commerce library environment to upload and serve files though the HTTPS protocol to other virtual machines, as if you were working in a native environment. If you have customizations in a WebSphere Commerce Build and Deployment tool server deployment package, you can upload it to have the customizations propagate from the newly created virtual system.

Virtual Application Pattern

You can also deploy the library as a virtual application pattern. In some cases, the imported virtual system pattern might point to another image. Ensure that the correct WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition is used before you deploy the virtual application pattern.
