IBM Spectrum Scale and IBM Spectrum Fusion for RedHat OpenShift

BP Academy, IBM Innovation Center Ljubljana, room 1a, 9:00-13:00

Date: Friday, May 27 from 9:00 to 13:00 Central European Time

IBM Spectrum Scale is an industry-leading software-defined data and storage management solution that perfectly meets the demands of AI, analytics and high-performance computing (HPC) workloads with its performance and scalability2, and a wealth of sophisticated data management capabilities. IBM Spectrum Scale helps you: 

  • Maximize data availability to deliver faster results with less complexity using unified storage for file, object, Hadoop and other data analytics applications.
  • Achieve new operational efficiency and cost effectiveness on the same hardware.
  • Optimize data placement through policy-driven automation and tiered storage management which spans flash, tape and cloud.
  • Create an AI information architecture for the hybrd cloud data center with global data services that span from the edge to the public cloud and include new Kubernetes deployments and connections.

By incorporating IBM Spectrum Scale into your software-defined infrastructure, you can streamline data workflows, help improve service, reduce costs, mitigate risk and deliver business results today while positioning your organization for future growth. 

Data sheet:


IBM Spectrum Fusion is the foundation for container-native applications running on Red Hat OpenShift, which provides enterprise grade data-storage and protection services. 

IBM Spectrum Fusion Software - the newest member of the Spectrum Storage family - is a robust, full-featured, enterprise-hardened container-native data services platform for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (RHOCP) and IBM Cloud Paks. Designed to provide a complete, turnkey deployment platform — including comprehensive data services and a flexible, multi-protocol data foundation for all OCP workloads — Fusion is offered either with a bare metal RHOCP deployment in an x86-based Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) appliance form factor, or as a pure Software-Defined Storage (SDS) solution. Help your customers escape the 'hypervisor tax' by deploying RHOCP on bare metal servers — reduce cost and complexity, while amping up performance and scalability.

Spectrum Fusion is built from proven, enterprise-hardened technologies like Spectrum Scale and Discover, and provides a bare metal foundation for the rapid deployment and easy management of any RHOCP environment. We've brought the entirety of our rich heritage and vast IP portfolio in supercomputing, AI/ML, and industrial-strength data resilience to bear on the design of Fusion. The result is a performance- and cost-optimized platform that unlocks the full potential of RHOCP - at any scale.

Beyond basic, native data services, Fusion delivers a full set of enterprise-grade capabilities including advanced, state-aware data protection, multi-zone and cross-zone replication for application resilience, GPU-acceleration via NVIDIA DGX integration, and transparent, policy-driven caching and data movement via Spectrum Scale Active File Management (AFM). Fusion SDS will also fully support Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation (ODF) in a subsequent release later this year.
