"Finally, more than 40 clients are already using IBM Storage as a persistent, secure, highly available repository for Red Hat OpenShift."

"In addition, the company said the IBM Storage Suite for Cloud Paks is expanding support for container-native data access on Red Hat OpenShift which should increase flexibility for continuous integration and delivery for file, object and block as software-defined storage. IBM Spectrum Scale adds a fully containerized client and run-time operator to provide access to scalable data lakes on any Red Hat OpenShift cluster. IBM Cloud Object Storage adds support for the open source s3fs file to the object storage interface bundled with Red Hat OpenShift."

Analysts reported the following:

David Hill, Mesabi Group, e-Week Article:

“IBM continues to realize that data storage must reside on physical media, including (tape, flash, and persistent memory). But the company also focuses on providing the necessary software solutions that deliver both high performance and scaling of applications and their data. This is done through the use of a container-native storage environment across multiple locations that are, by definition, always present in the hybrid multi-cloud.”

Scott Sinclair, ESG, Blog:

“With these announcements, IBM consolidates multiple storage types into an easier to deploy and access software-defined package. IBM is also allowing its enterprise-level protection functionality, IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Server, to be deployed via Red Hat OpenShift operators, expediating and automating IT operations. Modern apps get the resources they need automatically and quickly, simplifying IT, reducing costs, and speeding up business initiatives. Everyone wins.”

Steve McDowell, Moor Insights, Forbes Article:

“For nearly sixty years, one thing has held true: whenever there is a fundamental transformation in information technology, IBM is usually right in the middle of it, lighting the way. This continues with IBM’s new capabilities for serving storage in a containerized world. There is powerful potential here. I like what IBM is delivering.”

Scott Sinclair, ESG, Media Reference Quoted in TechTarget Article:

“"As adoption of containers in production continues to rise, so has the need for enterprise-level storage capabilities and additional functionality to expedite the adoption. IBM recognizes this as well. IBM's integration of features for storage and data production keeps pace with how organizations want to consume containers," Sinclair said.”

Charles King, Pund-IT, eWeek Article:

“In addition, the company said the IBM Storage Suite for Cloud Paks is expanding support for container-native data access on Red Hat OpenShift which should increase flexibility for continuous integration and delivery for file, object and block as software-defined storage. IBM Spectrum Scale adds a fully containerized client and run-time operator to provide access to scalable data lakes on any Red Hat OpenShift cluster. IBM Cloud Object Storage adds support for the open source s3fs file to the object storage interface bundled with Red Hat OpenShift.”

David Hill, Mesabi Group, Blog:

“IBM Spectrum Scale now delivers container-native storage access by enabling the creation of storage for a Kubernetes environment in mere seconds with what IBM calls a simple container application. […] This transparent access to a single pool of data no matter where the data resides in the organization eliminates not only the problem of having to discover data that has been isolated in silos (and thus hard to find), but also the need to create duplicate copies of the data. This lowers costs and improves the multiple location access to data that is inherent in a hybrid cloud and also improves the experience of everyone who has to work with the data.”

Martin Hingley, ITCandor, Blog:

“IBM is succeeding in addressing new and future trends in these announcements. […] IBM constantly backs the winning horse – as it did with VMware and KVM, as well as its early insistence on addressing hybrid multi-cloud environments with its storage strategy. Its challenge has always been to make a commercial success of its early moves.”

Cabot Partners, Blog:

“As HPC and Analytics grow and converge, clients can continue to leverage these new IBM storage capabilities to overcome the many challenges with deploying and scaling AI across their enterprise. These simple storage solutions – on-premises or on hybrid multi-clouds can accelerate their AI journey from ingest to insights.”

Clabby Analytics, Blog:

“As customers shift to containerized architecture, it is vital that the move be as painless as possible. Or, in other words, as “simple” as possible. IBM is doing a lot of the programming work needed to simplify the deployment of its storage software into containers, while also adding value to its hardware offerings. Is IBM’s “storage made simple” claim still justifiable? We think that with the simplicity that containerization brings to the computing world, the answer is a definite “yes!” In fact, we believe that the new name of IBM’s storage presentation should be “storage made simpler.”’

Jean Bozman, Robert Frances Group, Research Note:

“IBM Storage announcements underscore the importance of IBM Spectrum Storage software in fulfilling many aspects of IBM’s overall strategy for AI and hybrid clouds. Having containers as a unifying focus for enterprise storage –and cloud-native storage –becomes ever more important as customers accelerate their transition to cloud-native applications developed by DevOps and DevSecOps teams.

Mark Albertson, siliconANGLE, Article:

IBM announced an expansion of storage capabilities that left no doubt about its strategic approach: It is a containerized world, and IBM — through its integration with Red Hat’s OpenShift platform for Kubernetes — intends to be a major part of it.
