FOCUS ON STORAGE

A year after the announcement of the IBM Spectrum
Storage family, the interest in SDI is high. In fact,
IBM is seeing 60 percent of clients involved in
early adoption committed to investing in this new
technology. According to an ESG Research report, if
we add clients expressing interest, we can grow the
potential SDI community to over 80 percent2.
This increased SDI desire is fueled by the rapid
adoption of big data, analytics, mobile and cognitive
workloads by many enterprises as they look to expand
their knowledge and business advantage. Clients
are building data gathering and transformation
environments, and seeing a change in the form of
storage. As they start to outgrow traditional storage
silos in the IT landscape, storage-rich servers are
being defined by the new SDI workloads as the data
target of choice.

The Suite Life
The software suite experience is not new to IT
landscapes. Back in 1988, Microsoft* launched its
first bundled application suite, Microsoft Office, which
contained Word, Excel and PowerPoint. By doing
so, it effectively created a software-defined desktop.
Many have since copied this idea in various areas of
the IT environment. Packaging applications in a suite
doesn't prevent a la carte selections; it just delivers
consistency across users and simplifies the operation
and maintenance. Just like the rest of IT, this bundle of
Microsoft Office applications is available in the cloud
or as a hybrid environment.
The IBM Spectrum Storage family includes six softwaredefined storage products that can now be brought together
as a suite of software:

IBM Spectrum Storage Suite licenses are available as either a perpetual or monthly pricing
model. The two models can also be combined to
form what is called a utility licensing model (see
Figure 1, above).
For example, a client with 500 TB of storage-area
network (SAN) storage and 500 TB of storage-rich
