VSC/TPC Customer Feedback Programs:

IBM is looking for customers and business partners to participate in our Beta Program and Early Access Program (EAP) for IBM SmartCloud Virtual Storage Center (VSC).

VSC includes all TPC functions plus Advanced Analytics such as Storage Tiering Automation, VMware Integration (Clustering support and vSphere Plug-in), Self Service Provisioning and more.

Enhancements are being made to many areas of VSC:

TPC customers as well as VSC customers all are invited to participate. As topics are introduced, the facilitator will define the boundaries between what is included in VSC versus TPC.

Both the Beta and the EAP start in January, 2014 and provide participants with an opportunity to influence the design of future VSC enhancements by providing feedback directly to development. Participants in the EAP will be invited to monthly meetings to provide feedback on potential future designs. Participants in the Beta will be given access to pre-released code and asked to provide weekly feedback related to the install, time-to-value and overall user experience.

To request enrollment in the beta program, submit the VSC/TPC Beta Signup form.

To request enrollment in the EAP program, submit the VSC/TPC EAP Signup form.

  • Note: Because the new features and functionality are unannounced, the material presented throughout the programs will be classified IBM Confidential. Participants will be required to accept a standard legal agreement that has been approved for use within IBM Software Group at IBM. This agreement must be completed before any participant will be accepted into the beta and EAP programs.
