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.
