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 that cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Fixed Content Device Staging using Database Storage Location
With the move to containerization we are finding that support of and implementation of NFS or other mounted file systems like Network Attached Storage (NAS) or Storage Attached Network (SAN) are no longer acceptable. We have requirements however for WORM Immutable storage achieved by Fixed Content Device connection to Hitachi Content Provider (HCP) in aligned mode (SEC requirements). Fixed Content Device (FCD) connectivity to HCP requires a staging location which is typically an NFS mount to same file system from multiple Content Platform Engine (CPE) servers. The Read Write Many aspect is critical for access to this file system due any CPE JVM in domain processing from the shared staging location. To become agnostic to local shared file systems requirement for staging (NAS or SAN), we would like to see that A or THE data base storage area be used for staging, including modifying existing staging location to use database storage locations.
