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.

Improve Transfer Speed between CDU on EC2 instance and S3

We are in the testing staging of using CDU to download file from S3 and push to some other CD Node. However, after we perform testing a large file (GB), we found that the transfer speed is almost three time slower than AWS S3 CP command.

 

We have a ticket open with IBM support and the recommendation is to turn off Checkpoint and s3.endPointSecure. However, only the change of s3.endPointSecure improves the speed close to AWS S3 CP command. But this raised a concern to our security team since the communication between CDU and S3 will happen via HTTP. 

 

So, we would like to request this process to be reviewed and improved for a transfer speed without sacrificing the security.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we believe that some performance improvements would be possible for S3 access. We will accept this enhancement request and will look to place this item on the roadmap moving forward.


    Sincerely,
