Cloud computing is a concept that describes the pooling of computing resources in a “cloud” to provide a single source of computing power to multiple users. The cloud  manager provides a self-service deployment interface that maintains permissions, information about cloud artifacts such as virtual images and patterns, and resource usage (for chargeback).

The WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance is a secure hardware appliance that represents such a cloud manager. It optimizes the configuration, deployment, and management of WebSphere Application Server environments in a cloud. While the WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance is targeted for private or on-premise cloud computing environments, it can also be used by service providers providing hosted public clouds and software-as-a-service environments to simplify and standardize repeated deployments of their software.

WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance is part of a powerful and comprehensive set of cloud computing and virtualization solutions for intelligently deploying and managing service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications, services, and environments to achieve smarter business outcomes. These solutions deliver robustness and agility to enable applications to adapt to changing market conditions while lowering costs.
