IBM Sterling Ideas

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

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a 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 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 offering manager team 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 notifications 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.

Supoprt for HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System)

What version of Sterling Connect:Direct Linux/Windows will support Hadoop HDFS? Do you have any release date? I found similar thread at https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=65228 but I didn't see any updates.

Thanks.

    Thank you for your patience as this enhancement request waited in the Connect:Direct backlog for resource to become available. We initially planned to deliver direct HDFS access via Connect:Direct, but upon further review don't believe that it would be the best use of resources.

    The modern storage market appears to have shifted away from Hadoop and towards cloud object storage. Because of this we have focused our investment there and believe that Hadoop storage requirements has become less relevant. Because of that shift in market interest I will need to update this request to move it from an Uncommitted Candidate to a Declined status as I don't believe we'll be able to deliver it within 2 years. I'm sorry to change directions on this request, but believe it will likely be the best use of resources.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
