Simplifying data
management at scale
IBM Spectrum Scale seamlessly
handles tens of thousands of clients,
Æ! %Ã!îÉ%ÃÄ ÈÃ1!&&ÄÆ1&É%Ã
of data, providing integrated
management tools and an intuitive
GUI to help manage data at scale.
The system can span multiple
storage environments and data
centers, and can automatically
distribute and replicate data
across storage systems to optimize
utilization, performance, security,
and business continuity. IBM
Spectrum Scale is the caretaker
of business-critical data with the
capability to replicate, encrypt,
compress and distribute data across
different hardware platforms,
systems, and data centers.
Improving mixed storage
performance and economy
With IBM Spectrum Scale, storage administrators can combine
¯Ä%QÃÈ%QÃÇ!'ÈÃÄ ÈÃ&Ä"ÉÃ%&!$ÄÉÃ
 &!ÃÄÃ' ®ÉÈÃ%1%&ÉÃ)&ÃÉ$Ã
performance and lower cost than
traditional approaches. It provides
a single namespace for all of this
data, and a single point of management with an intuitive GUI. Using
storage policies transparent to end
users, data can be compressed or
tiered to tape or cloud to help cut
costs; data can also be tiered to
high-performance media, including server cache, to lower latency
and improve performance.
Enabling global collaboration
IBM Spectrum Scale enables
low-latency read and write
access to data from anywhere in
the world using Advanced File
Management (AFM) distributed
routing and advanced caching
technology. AFM expands the IBM
Spectrum Scale global namespace
across geographical distances,
providing high-performance,
location-independent data access
that accelerates project schedules

and improves productivity for
globally distributed teams.

Innovative Storage
and Data Management
IBM storage solutions that leverage
the combined capabilities and
IBM Z integrations of DS8880 stor-

age systems and Spectrum Scale
software can deliver the performance, security, reliability and scalability that are essential for today's
evolving mainframe workloads.

Gain Insight Into z/OS
Network Security Usage and
WebSphere Transactions
Tuesday, October 29 | 1 ET / 12 CT
Derive More Intelligence From
zERT and WebSphere SMF Data

FEATURING:

Network encryption is a hot z/OS topic
because of the importance of security
in the mainframe world. Join us as we
Dr. Gilbert Houtekamer
discuss and demonstrate how to use Founder and Managing Director
IntelliMagic Inc.
the power of the machine to derive
insight into IBM's new data for network
encryption, z Encryption Readiness
Technology (zERT).
For WebSphere and MQ, healthy
operation is also mission-critical. All
these components produce robust SMF
metrics that are extremely valuable but
underutilized with status quo reporting
today. IntelliMagic Vision provides new
visualizations and analytics to let you
quickly and efficiently check their health
and workload.
