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.

Currently, even with BRMS cloud storage solution, full system recovery fore IBM i is not achievable 100%completely via network. You need to load LIC and OS initially from some type of physical device like tape or DVD drive and then restore rest from the network. It will be great if BRMS and/or IBMi native commands can create full system backup on bootable iso image, or at least enable the creation of bootable iso image for LIC and OS only, which can be used to boot from the network. The image repository can be any NFS or FTP/SFTP server, which can host the bootable image created via full system backup. So the potential recovery scenario would be: 1. D mode IPL from VIOS virtual image I_BASE_01 2. In DST define TCP/IP configuration for remote system containing the bootable Full backup image/s 3. Select alternative installation device to be the network interface 4. Select the bootable network image 5. Restore LIC, OS and rest of the system completely using the network.
This will allow IBMi to be completely recovered from the network without the need of using any physical media.
Full system recovery via network, without the need of physical media to load LIC and OS initially.
