GPFS

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

GPFS is a proprietary parallel filesystem developed by IBM originally for handling large multimedia files on a cluster of networked computers.

The School maintained a small (~5TB) scratch filesystem for researchers however the free to use license version is not supported on SL7
If you are interested in using GPFS and have very deep pockets then please submit an RT ticket.

Please note that the GPFS filesystem will EOL when we switch to SL7 as it's no longer possible to obtain driver support on the version we have licensed.

More information about GPFS can be found on wikipedia and at the ibm GPFS site.
