IBM® PureFlexTM System, which is a part of the IBM PureSystemsTM family of expert integrated systems, combines advanced IBM hardware and software along with patterns of expertise and integrates them into three optimized configurations that are simple to acquire and deploy so you can achieve faster time to value.
If you want a pre-configured, pre-integrated infrastructure with integrated management and cloud capabilities, factory tuned from IBM with x86 and Power hybrid solution, IBM PureFlex System is the answer.
In this IBM Redbooks® publication, we use EX4500 core switches to demonstrate interoperability with the System Networking switches (RackSwitchTM G8264 top of rack switch and the Flex system fabric EN4093 10Gb scalable switch).
We also describe a redundant environment using QFX3500 switches running IBM Virtual-Link Aggregation Group (MC-LAG/vLAG) and Juniper Multi- Chassis-Link Aggregation Group.
This IBM Redbooks® publication helps the network and system administrator install, tailor, and quickly configure the IBM Distributed Virtual Switch 5000V (DVS 5000V) for a new or existing virtualization computing environment. It provides several practical applications of the numerous features of the DVS 5000V, including a step-by-step guide to deploying, configuring, maintaining, and troubleshooting the device. Administrators who are already familiar with the CLI interface of IBM System Networking switches will be comfortable with the DVS 5000V. Regardless of whether the reader has previous experience with IBM System Networking, this publication is designed to help you get the DVS 5000V functional quickly, and provide a conceptual explanation of how the DVS 5000V works in tandem with VMware.
This book is aimed at pre- and post-sales support, targeting network administrators and other technical professionals that want to get an overview of this new and exciting technology, and see how it fits into the overall vision of a truly Software Defined Environment. It shows you all of the steps that are required to design, install, maintain, and troubleshoot the IBM SDN VE product. It also highlights specific, real-world examples that showcase the power and flexibility that IBM SDN VE has over traditional solutions with a legacy network infrastructure that is applied to virtual systems.
This book assumes that you have a general familiarity with networking and virtualization. It does not assume an in-depth understanding of KVM or VMware. It is written for administrators who want to get a quick start with IBM SDN VE in their respective virtualized infrastructure, and to get some virtual machines up and running by using the rich features of the product in a short amount of time (days, not week, or months).

The above scripture is the basis for this novel that is targeted toward the religious/inspirational fictional genre. The story centers on its two main characters, Cassandra and Jazzrah.
Cassandra is a thirty year old African American professional engineer from Detroit, Michigan. Having overcome numerous life obstacles (poverty, drugs, sickness, etc.) early in her life, Cassandra finally achieved success. Jazzrah began his life as a created angel in heaven. With his angelic brother Seth always at his side, Jazzrah enjoyed singing daily with the other angels. He sang praises every day until he encountered Bial, whose job was to spread God’s glory each morning by spreading his wings toward the rising sun. Sin set in when Bial became puffed up and started to believe that the glory came from him and not God. He successfully convinced a third of all of the angels, including Jazzrah, to abandon their assignments and follow him. For their sin against the Father, Bial and the other disobedient angels were expelled from their heavenly environment.
On earth in his new environment, Jazzrah was charged with collecting the souls of one million women. Upon completing his assignment, he would be promoted in Bial’s earthy and wicked regime. The only boundary was that he had to identify the targeted soul at birth. He met Cassandra the day of her birth in Detroit and began planning immediately to collect her soul by throwing the five acts of deception outlined in the above scripture at her over the thirty year period. Affliction, persecution, cares of the world, deceitfulness of riches, and lusts were strategically employed to push Cassandra to the edge.
On a cold December night Cassandra had finally reached the edge. No longer capable of dealing with life, Cassandra stands poised on a roof top ready to end her life. In the background on the roof, a silent witness ( Jazzrah ) watches in anticipation. As she takes one step forward, the remaining source of angelic goodness in Jazzrah sets off a war against his wickedness. The book chronicles the vents that brought Jazzrah and Cassandra together and resolves the spiritual conflict.

Joyce's final work, Finnegan's Wake is his masterpiece of the night as Ulysses is of the day. Supreme linguistic virtuosity conjures up the dark underground worlds of sexuality and dream. Joyce undermines traditional storytelling and all official forms of English and confronts the different kinds of betrayal - cultural, political and sexual - that he saw at the heart of Irish history. Dazzlingly inventive, with passages of great lyrical beauty and humour, Finnegans Wake remains one of the most remarkable works of the twentieth century.
James Joyce (1882-1941), the eldest of ten children, was born in Dublin, but exiled himself to Paris at twenty as a rebellion against his upbringing. He only returned to Ireland briefly from the continent but Dublin was at heart of his greatest works, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. He lived in poverty until the last ten years of his life and was plagued by near blindness and the grief of his daughter's mental illness.
If you enjoyed Finnegans Wake, you might like Virginia Woolf's The Waves, also available in Penguin Classics.

LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER was banned on its publication in 1928, creating a storm of controversy. Lawrence tells the story of Constance Chatterley’s marriage to Sir Clifford, an aristocratic and an intellectual who is paralyzed from the waist down after the First World War. Desperate for an heir and embarrassed by his inability to satisfy his wife, Clifford suggests that she have an affair. Constance, troubled by her husband’s words, finds herself involved in a passionate relationship with their gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors. Lawrence’s vitriolic denunciations of industrialism and class division come together in his vivid depiction of the profound emotional and physical connection between a couple otherwise divided by station and society.
