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
Start by posting ideas and requests to this portal to enhance a Power product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you
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 Power teams 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 notification 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.

Enhance PHA Startup Policy "Online Using Node Distribution Policy"
Today the PowerHA Starup policy "Online Using Node Distribution Policy" is hard coded to use the CPU load only.There should be the same list of options as for Resource Group Fallover policy "Fallover Using Dynamic Node Priority".
It will be useful if we would add a priority option to the tiebreaker solution.The idea is: - If the system with a lower priority will do a sleep of some seconds (need to be configurable), before it tries to get hold of the Tie-breaker. This would...
PowerHA - Enhance checks in cl_activate_fs in case of non NODE_DOWN events to prevent dual mount of file system
