Add an Instance-Based Compute Pool

Add an Instance-Based Compute Pool

A compute pool is a pool of processor, memory, and storage resources associated with an environment. The customer allocates processor and memory resources from their compute pool to their virtual machines. An environment can contain more than one compute pool, affording greater scalability within an environment.

Compute pools are one of two types based on how resources are allocated to the virtual machines. In reserved compute pools, customers purchase and manage resources for their virtual machines. In instance-based compute pools, IBM allocates and manages the required resources for virtual machines.

You can only add instance-based compute pools.

Note: You cannot create a compute pool in primary and backup disaster recovery environments.

  1. Either on the Resources tab or on the Devices tab, click Add New.
  2. The Add Instance Based Compute Pool dialog appears.

  3. Type a Compute Pool Name.
  4. Select to agree to the Terms and Conditions.
  5. Type your Signature.
  6. Note: Signature must match your full name as presented in the watermark.

  7. Click Save.
