Integration

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

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 a notification 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.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portal, please send email describing the issue to ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution. For more information about IBM's Ideas program visit ibm.com/ideas.

Supporting the integration of VMs hosting DataPower Gateway virtual appliances into VMware vSphere Site Recovery Manager (SRM) configuration

We use VMware vSphere Site Recovery Manager (SRM) as part of our Disaster Recovery Solution.

The network and security configuration of our DR site is absolutely identical to that of the Primary site.

In addition, we use DataPower Gateway virtual appliances as part of our infrastructure.

Therefore, we are interested in supporting the integration of VMs hosting DataPower Gateway virtual appliances into our SRM configuration, in order to failover them to the DR site in case of unavailability of the Primary site or for testing purposes.
