IBM Spectrum Storage…
On November 4, IBM announced a set of enhancements to its IBM Spectrum Storage Family, specifically to IBM Spectrum Virtualize, IBM Spectrum Scale/IBM Elastic Storage Server and IBM Spectrum Control. These enhancements focus on extending data security, improving storage economics, and reducing management complexity.
The Spectrum Family of software-defined storage was first announced in February, 2015 — a rebranding of existing storage solutions with new names more indicative of product function. The rebranding also put forth the notion of a “family,” rather than marketing the products based on their individual capabilities and product evolution. This announcement takes the concept a step further with common GUIs and consistent management across products, as well as more tightly integrated functionality. In addition, IBM also previewed the IBM Spectrum Storage Suite, a single capacity-based license that will include all the IBM Spectrum Storage offerings, and “Big Storage,” a cloud-based storage service tier.
