IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. 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 offering manager 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 notifications 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.

HA solution for Connect:Direct using replication

Since Cloud VMs are widely used these days, has IBM considered to certify HA solution for Connect:Direct on Cloud VMs without requiring OS-level clustering software such as Windows Clustering or Veritas Cluster Software (VCS) for Linux? Those OS-level clustering software and shared storage are expensive.

    Thank you for your patience as we've progressed with the enhancement request backlog for Connect:Direct. Unfortunately after additional consideration we believe that the decision on this request must be changed and that it will not be considered for inclusion into Connect:Direct moving forward. We believe that VM cluster support has become less critical as technology has evolved and that traditional cluster support and future container scalability would be the best areas for focus engineering resources.

    Sincerely,
