Tivoli Provisioning Manager for Images delivers unified physical and virtual image management, as an integrated heterogeneous systems management offering.

Tivoli Provisioning Manager for Images allows organizations to improve IT efficiency through unparalleled image management flexibility. It offers an automated software solution for image management that provides the ability to discover, capture, store, edit, maintain and deploy images across physical, virtual, blade and image-based infrastructures. The discovery process enables virtual infrastructure resource mapping and portability between physical hosts and virtual environments in any direction. Tivoli Provisioning Manager for Images' ability to do physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual-to-virtual (V2V) and virtual-to-physical (V2P) conversions allows physical servers to be easily migrated into and out of virtual infra-structures quickly to achieve the benefits of large-scale server consolidation, rapid provisioning, and workload mobility.

The Tivoli Provisioning Manager for Images offers a holistic solution for image management that is unique in the market. It uses cutting edge techniques to capture and deploy virtual and physical images. For example, before capturing an image it analyzes the file system to store the image in an optimized way to provide defragmented image capture, smaller footprint virtual disks, provides a faster restore and deployment process, and it works on virtual and physical machines. This product also helps to conserve storage space by reducing the number of images needed across your environment. Each file - rather than each image - is stored once and the capture process only sends a delta, which means your organization spends less administrative time creating new images that have only slight variations.

Tivoli Provisioning Manager for Images also offers a universal image and driver injection feature. The software can create a single image, separate the device-specific drivers from that image and inject them at installation, enabling you to install on multiple hardware devices using a single image. You can use a single image for security patches or personnel roles, for instance, making that image available for all hardware installations across your platform or all personnel in the Human Resources department, further conserving storage space and costs.
