Straightforward per-TB pricing for the entire suite is related to the amount of storage capacity, not the type of storage or how it is used.
There are no licensing headaches when changing from one type of storage to another or from one data type to another.
The license includes all members of the Spectrum Storage family, so there's no delay waiting for procurement of required software. Non-production use of the software in test environments is included.
All members of the IBM Spectrum Storage Suite use a consistent user interface, which reduces needs for training and helps avoid errors caused by differences in product interfaces.
All members of the suite are designed to work together. Plus, experience IBM world-wide support for this entire comprehensive SDS solution.
