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.

For some years the School maintained a small (~5TB) scratch filesystem for researchers. However, the free-to-use version cannot be used on SL7 (it's no longer possible to obtain driver support) so we discontinued the service.

If you are interested in using GPFS, and have very deep pockets, then please let us know.

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