Western Michigan IBM Spectrum Protect User Group

Welcome to the Western Michigan Spectrum User Group home page! Our user group focuses on the IBM Spectrum family of Software Defined Storage solutions. Our goals are to:

  • Facilitate communications between User Group members regarding the IBM Spectrum SDS solutions.
  • Provide updates on product direction and new features of the IBM Spectrum SDS product family.
  • Share technical information and real life experience to help enable users to find better methodologies for improving their experience with the products.
  • Gain access to Spectrum SDS speakers on variety of technical topics.
  • Provide answers to questions about the use of Spectrum products.

We try to hold quarterly meetings, as well as use the group forum to manage group communications.

The user group meetings for the Spectrum SDS solutions family have been broken into 3 categories based on product type/interaction:

  1. Spectrum Protect (includes topics from other products that can be used with Spectrum Protect)
  2. Spectrum Virtualize, Spectrum Accelerate, Spectrum Control
  3. Spectrum Scale, Spectrum Archive, IBM Cloud Object Storage

The above categories will include the Spectrum SDS solution as “Software Only” and “Appliance” formats, such as the IBM FlashSystems and Storwise family of storage arrays, and Elastic Storage Server (ESS).
