Hi Zach,

I'm not aware of any intent to make TPC or any other Tivoli/IBM product a
prereq for GPFS, and I don't think any such plans exist.  Rather, as Dean
also pointed out, we're investing work to improve integration of
GPFS/Spectrum Scale into other products being members of the newly
announced IBM Spectrum Storage family, with the goal of improving
manageability of the individual components (rather than worsening it...).
