> IBM SmartCloud Provisioning (formerly BM Service Agility Accelerator for 
> Cloud (ISAAC) or High Scale Low Touch (HSLT)) is a true IaaS (Infrastructure 
> as a Service) solution that can reduce costs and offer near-zero downtime and 
> automated recovery. This provides new solution that provides quick cloud 
> deployment and features automated provisioning, parallel scalability and 
> integrated fault tolerance to increase operational efficiency and respond to 
> user needs. It also provides the foundation to integrate more advanced cloud 
> capabilities such as cloud service management capabilities. 
> For more detail information about IBM SmartCloud Provisioning, please visit 
> the following website.  
> http://www-01.ibm.com/software/tivoli/products/smartcloud-provisioning/
> To take the advantages of the advanced features in IBM SmartCloud 
> Provisioning, I write the new VCL provisioning module called hslt.pm.  The 
> new module can achieve the fast VCL reservation by creating paths (links) to 
> the virtual machine images instead of copying the original images to the 
> instance directory in NFS file systems. For example, the main portion of the 
> reservation time depends on the time for copying original images to the 
> instance directory in NFS systems and it is not trivial at all. But IBM 
> SmartCloud Provisioning does not require to copy images themselves. Instead, 
> it creates links (paths) to the images in the hypervisor nodes and the 
> hypervisors will map the links and load the images. This can reduce costs for 
> both reservation times and storage usages. 
> Please take a look the hslt.pm module and contact me if you have questions.
> Thanks,
