This project will update the previous GPFS publication: Implementing the IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS) in a Cross Platform Environment, SG24-7844. Additional areas to explore and document are:
• GPFS as a part of IBM’s broader software-defined storage environments
• Review use cases and expand the breadth of applicability of GPFS beyond traditional HPC use cases – SAP HANA, DB2 BLU Acceleration, Hadoop Analytics, Object store for OpenStack, and so on.
• Document GPFS FPO as a part of the GPFS capability for Big Data (not covered in prior IBM RedBooks)
• Position the IBM Platform Computing cloud service for clients needing high-performance software-defined storage in the cloud
• Explain the synergy between GPFS and storage intensive IBM products: Platform Symphony, Platform LSF, Algo, DataStage (where GPFS is part of the big data references architecture), Optim, BigInsights, Streams, SPSS, and so on.
In addition to updating the GPFS publication, the residency team will explore and document the following topics:
o An overview of the Platform Computing Cloud Services
o MultiCluster technology is central to the cloud service since this is how hybrid clusters are deployed
o GPFS as an option in the cloud service and why it is valuable
o Comparative economics of deploying on-premise vs. in the cloud

I recently announced the opening for nominations for the IBM Software Defined Environment residency program. I encourage you to submit your nomination utilizing the link included at the bottom of this announcement.
A Software Defined Environment (SDE) optimizes the entire computing infrastructure — compute, storage and network resources — so that it can adapt to the type of work required. In today's environment, resources are assigned manually to workloads; that happens automatically in a SDE. In a SDE, workloads are dynamically assigned to IT resources based on application characteristics, best-available resources, and service level policies to deliver continuous, dynamic optimization and reconfiguration to address infrastructure issues. Underlying all of this are policy-based compliance checks and updates, in a centrally managed environment. So, think integration, automation and optimization. Those are enablers to cloud delivery and analytics. SDE has the capability to accelerate business success by making a happy marriage between workloads and resources so you have a responsive, adaptive environment.
With IBM’s Software Defined Environment, infrastructure is fully programmable to rapidly deploy workloads on optimal resources and to instantly respond to changing business demands
Software = Abstracted and virtualized IT infrastructure resources managed by software
Defined = Applications automatically define infrastructure requirements and configuration
Environments = IT infrastructure that extends multiple environments to go beyond the data center
During the residency the team will position all the IBM Software Defined Environment (SDE) offerings in a holistic way, and focus on SDE planning, implementation and management. When possible, the SDE reference architecture can be describe including software products such as the IBMSmartCloud Orchestrator, Provisioning and also Application LifeCycle Management, and so on. The overall goal of the residency is to create a publication describing how to make all the bits work together with references to the content that explains how the individual products work within the SDE solution.

I am working brainstorming topics with my residency team about IBM PowerHA with focus on migration practices.
After evaluating the current documentation including: Installation guides (manuals) and available Redbooks, there is very good documentation on migration scenarios already available including combinations of operating systems and PowerHA versions.
I am asking the broader technical audience via my blog if there is anything outside of what is currently documented that you think might be useful to create content, and document it an IBM Redbooks.
Feedback would be greatly appreciate it.
