This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

.VM Recovery Manager DR takes care of storage mirror management for supported storage. In the current model, it is not a storage based mirror, so VM Recovery Manager DR can be used in shared mode, where VMRM ignores replication management.
Another request would be use a different VM on target and initiate DLPAR activities. So here VMRM DR can provide new option not to restart and still provide callback support. In the callbacks identify the right target VM and initiate DLPAR activities. Callback implementation need to be done by user.
Mr Bhat, Reviewed the diagram. Currently VM Recovery Manager enables the following:
1. Customer fixes the size of the VMs (CPU, and Memory) on the main site. They also pre define the %of resources they need for backup site. When admin initiates the failover the VM sizes are adjusted and redeployed
2. VM Recovery Manager works only with Storage replication currently. There are no plans currently to support any other replication
There is an immediate opportunity for Power Systems Recovery Manager at one of the biggest oil company in India [Government of India, Maharatna venture].
27 POWER8/9 servers across DC & DR, totalling an install base of 884 cores.
Attachment (Use case): -Diagram shows business requirements. -Only DR is depicted in diagram -DC only hosts PROD -Under normal condition DC runs PROD and DR hosts PREPROD, T&D and PROD with 40%, 40% & 20% compute capacity respectively -Once DR is invoked need to resize PREPROD, T&D and PROD to 0%, 10% & 90% compute capacity respectively
