IBM Power Ideas Portal

Shape the future of IBM!

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,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

5733-ICC File upload over 100GB

With 5733-ICC it is currently not possible to use files larger than 100GB, which is not practical.

Use Case:

Virtual tapes sizes bigger than 100GB.

    I think it's a practical limit, because backing to the cloud with larger files can make restore of just one object slower when using BRMS, and there's a maximum file size limit un most clouds.
    That being said, I think this limit should be tunable .
    If You use your own script instead of BRMS maybe you could take a look at awscli or S3CMD Open Source alternatives.
