FOCUS ON STORAGE

result, administrators don't
have to become acquainted with
a litany of different platforms
to achieve the same results,
regardless of whether the devices
are on brand or off brand, in a
data center or in the cloud.

"Administrators say, 'Oh, wait
a minute. I know the underlying
device is different, but what I'm
dealing with here all looks the
same. I can use the same GUI and
software.' That allows you to better
use the resources that you have,

WEBINAR

Listen to Your Mainframe Data
Managing Performance and Security with
Splunk on your IBM Mainframe
WHEN
Tuesday, December 15
10 PT / Noon CT / 1 ET

AGENDA
In this webcast we will present the importance of Splunk® and
Ironstream® for managing performance and security on the
IBM z/OS® mainframe. We will review how Ironstream works
with Syslog, SMF data and log information from common
mainframe security packages like IBM's RACF and CA's Top
Secret to manage performance and security events, giving
customers an enterprise view of their environment thru
Splunk Enterprise.
We'll also discuss Ironstream integration to Splunk CIM,
IT Ops, and Splunk Enterprise Security™ as well as how
Ironstream can be used for network security intrusion
detection and other network monitoring aspects.

no matter what or where those
resources are," Lotko explains.
As an example, Hsu references
a major bank that has a cluster
file-share environment, a
real-time update environment
and a Hadoop environment.
It bought three different types
of appliances, along with
management software, for each
application. But by moving to
Spectrum Scale, it now only
has similarly staged storage
software supporting its hardware.
Additionally, Spectrum Archive
was integrated into the back end
to support all three environments
with a single archive policy.

Flexibility and
Dynamism
More data is good, but the wrong
management software can
introduce unnecessary complexity.
The IBM Spectrum Storage family
of software-defined storage
solutions can address that
problem. Whether acquired as a
suite, as multiples or singly, these
tools can address common issues
to help streamline deployments,
increase flexibility and create a
holistic view of storage assets-no
matter the appliance of vendor.
Notably, it can run both locally
and in the cloud. In the latter case,
all clients have to do is point it
at their environment and begin
working with it. If new versions
are released, the software gets
updated in the cloud, so users
never have to worry about how
to apply maintenance or upgrade
enhancements.
"We are giving our clients the
flexibility to have the software
delivered to them as part of an
appliance from IBM, be able to
use it to apply to their existing
hardware environments or
use with hardware from other
providers. To us and our clients,
this is all about flexibility and
dynamism," Lotko remarks.
