Compute Pools

Compute Pools

A Compute pool is a pool of processor, memory, and storage resources associated with an environment and provisioned from a cluster. 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, the customer purchases and allocates required resources for their virtual machines. In instance-based compute pools, IBM manages required resources on behalf of the customer for their virtual machines.

IBM creates and names the compute pools on behalf of the organization, the organization can suggest a name for their compute pools. Organization can create Instance-based compute pools in their environment.

If an environment has multiple compute pools, you can click on a specific compute pool tab to view or update the compute pool.

Note: Networks are an environment resource; therefore compute pool tabs are not visible from the Network tab of Environments.

If an environment has more than one compute pool, the Resources tab and Devices tab of Environments has a special All Compute Pools tab. All Compute Pools tab consolidates information for all compute pools in the environment onto one tab. Reserved compute pools can be identified using their name in black font. Instance-based compute pools can be identified using their name in green font.

You can perform the following activities:
