Description

Top rule

A container-native hybrid cloud data platform for OpenShift

Organizations must quickly adjust to the changing business and outside influences that are causing rapid change, resulting in a need for business agility and faster business insights. Clients need applications and data to adjust and shift in response to dynamic market demands. They also need diverse and simplified tools and data services to build anywhere, at any pace, and for applications and data to scale dynamically, achieve peak performance, and adhere to security requirements.

Companies need a consistent way to deploy applications across on-premises infrastructure and public clouds, and not all of them are deploying containers to create that portability and consistency between cloud and on-prem environments.

With container platforms such as OpenShift, there are several challenges that exist, especially for enterprise data workloads.

Developer challenges include:

  • Self-service and integration
  • Rapid access to storage
  • Rapid data recovery
  • Application portability

Data users, AI, and business application challenges include:

  • Access to large data sets
  • Quick data discovery
  • Performance at scale
  • GPU utilization

Challenges for the CIO, security office, or business analyst include:

  • Governance
  • Data security
  • Data resilience
  • Automation and consistency

An application approach to data

We need an architecture that has applications on top, a strong storage platform on the bottom, and storage services in the middle that provide a bridge between the layers and between the developer and the storage administrator.

The storage platform must have a strong foundation and needs to include key components such as:

  • Active File Management for high availability disaster recovery and global access
  • Simultaneous multiprotocol access
  • High-performance storage caching
  • Ability to archive to tape or cloud
  • Optimized for AI use cases
  • Data security with immutability and encryption

The storage services layer must also provide key components such as:

  • Data resilience
  • Capacity and performance management
  • Data discovery and orchestration
  • High availability and disaster recovery security and encryption
  • Migration services to not only move data, but also applications

IBM Spectrum Fusion HCI

IBM Spectrum Fusion HCI is appliance form-factor hyper-converged infrastructure with integrated software-defined, cloud-native storage purpose-built to meet the data access needs of enterprise-grade stateful Kubernetes applications on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

Accessibility Compliance Reports (previously known as a VPAT) containing details on accessibility compliance to standards, including the Worldwide Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, European Standard EN 301 349, and US Section 508, can be found on the IBM® Accessibility Conformance Report Request website.

To obtain copies of the IBM Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or IBM. An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to the full warranty period specified by IBM. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically through an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Client Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information.

CRU Service

IBM provides replacement CRUs to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM upon your request. CRUs are designated as being either a Tier 1 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU.

Tier 1 (mandatory) CRU

Installation of Tier 1 CRUs, as specified in this announcement, is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation.

Tier 2 (optional) CRU

You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge.

Based upon availability, CRUs will be shipped for next business day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies, in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU, whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU. You may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

CRU and On-site Service

At IBM's discretion, you will receive specified CRU service, or IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service level is:

  • 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday, excluding public or national holidays, next business day response. Calls must be received by 15:00 local time in order to qualify for next business day response.

Non-IBM parts service

IBM is now shipping machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts are to be serviced during the IBM machine warranty period. IBM is covering the service on these selected non-IBM parts as an accommodation to their clients, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

IBM Storage Expert Care Service and Support

International Warranty Service

International Warranty Service allows you to relocate any machine that is eligible for International Warranty Service and receive continued warranty service in any country where the IBM machine is serviced. If you move your machine to a different country, you are required to report the machine information to your Business Partner or IBM representative.

The warranty service type and the service level provided in the servicing country may be different from that provided in the country in which the machine was purchased. Warranty service will be provided with the prevailing warranty service type and service level available for the eligible machine type in the servicing country, and the warranty period observed will be that of the country in which the machine was purchased.

The following types of information can be found on the International Warranty Service website
