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.
Backup Db2 to on premisses S3 API devices (ie. EMC ECS)
Backup Db2 databases to low cost object storage devices such as EMC ECS using the S3 API. The current implementation of the S3 interface only works for a small list of known S3-style endpoints. (ie....s3.amazonaws.com, softlayer.net).
This would allow Db2 to send backups directly to a data domain without going through intermediates such as Veritas Netbackup, with the potential to save millions of dollars woth of Netbackup infrastrucuture. Refer to TS002048083.
