IBM Spectrum Scale, formerly GPFS

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

IBM Spectrum Scale, previously called GPFS, is a proprietary parallel filesystem, developed originally for handling large multimedia files on a cluster of networked computers.

For some years the School maintained a small (~5TB) GPFS 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 IBM Spectrum Scale, and you have very deep pockets, then please let us know.
