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.

Open Source Packeges - installed packages alignment between cluster partitions

Hello all,

we'd like to have a procedure or a product (including it in PowerHA should be perfect) to have the installed open source packages aligned between two or more partitions.

In our case we have a powerHA cluster of 3 nodes, and other 3 satellite partitions, every time we install a new package (or update existing one) we've to remember to do the same action on all partitions, and this is so frustrating and error-addicted.

It'd be great to have a system, a procedure or a product program that can manage this alignment automatically.

Many thanks in advance for your cooperation.

    IBM agrees on the value of this and plan to look at potential approaches, while no commitment can be made at this time.
