Everybody Can Have Hybrid Block Storage - IBM Virtually Tiers All Storage To The Cloud

Once upon a time, when clouds were young, we thought that all our fancy storage arrays would shortly sport built-in cloud tiering mechanisms. It seemed natural to want to burst capacity to the cloud, maybe even replicate some data to a cloud DR clone, or archive corporate data into some big data lake in the sky. There were a few gateway products and 3rd party replication utilities rolled out here and there, but for the most part on-premise storage and cloud storage have been kept a world apart. ... (but now) .... IBM Spectrum Virtualize, which is built into many IBM storage solutions (like Storwize and FlashSystem v9000) and available as a virtualizing solution over most 3rd party storage, is now inherently cloud-enabled.
