A new version of IBM Spectrum Control became generally available at the end of February.
All the new features and functions are on the IBM Knowledge Center website .., of particular note is the new Storage Reclamation function so Storage Administrators can reclaim/repurpose unused storage. Click on this link to read about all the new changes.
Well, the new storage management Software as a Service (SaaS) offering called IBM Spectrum Control Storage Insights is now available to the public (it went live on 6/29) . It offers some pretty neat features which I will be highlighting here in the coming weeks.
IBM Spectrum Control Storage Insights lives on IBM Service Engage portal, so you can find it here (including pricing): https://www.ibmserviceengage.com/storage-insights/learn
If you want to give the product a whirl (you will need a IBM ID for access), there is a live guided demo available here: https://sidemo.ib.ibmserviceengage.com/GuidedDemo/guide.html
Enjoy some screenshots.
Just a quick video on the new user interface for Tivoli Storage Productivity Center (TPC). The version that made this change was from 5.2.3 to 5.2.4. Enjoy.
