About this Episode

It's all about cloud-native and containers as IBM announces a slew of new features and offerings at its annual IBM Tech U event. The announcements included:

  • Spectrum Protect Plus enhancements for containers in production.
  • Spectrum Scale container-native storage access for Red Hat OpenShift.
  • Spectrum Discover now has deeper integration with Red Hat Openshift Container Storage & IBMB Cloud Digest Storage File Access
  • Vmware vSphere 7 support for end-to-end NVMe
  • Increased capacity for SCM in the FlashSystem 7200 & 9200 series

IBM also announced a longer-term vision for container-native data management.

There's a lot to digest, and IBM's Eric Herzog and Sam Werner join host Steve McDowell to talk through what was announced, and how IBM sees the challenges in today's hybrid-multicloud world.
