IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Db2 V11.1 .x.x pureScale for support of Power 9

TOSHIBA MEMORY is a biggest customer of Db2 V10.5 pureScale on Power8 for their MES system named SIView in Japan. They are running 5 pureScale instances for each 5 current plants.
In 2019, They will launch their new plant and have to build another SIView and pureScale asset (same with current 5 systems).
This time, we will propose pureScale V11.1 on Power9 because this client request +10 support period from 2019.

In addition, current running SIView pureScale V10.5 on P8 have not ever stopped for more than 2 years and the customer highly appreciate this point (pureScale reliability).
From that background, in this proposal, we are proposing not only original SIView pureScale(solid deal), but also Oracle winback for the SIView arournd Oracle based applications(very very challenging deal).
We are proposing to become next new pureScale larger than before.
