in announcement "IBM GPFS V3.5 introduces File Placement Optimizer for Linux " (http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?infotype=AN&subtype=CA&htmlfid=897/ENUS212-476&appname=USN) is not a lot of technical details and documentation.
Do anybody have more technical information about this new feature in GPFS? Where is it going to be covered in Documentation?

Which means you can now build a Hadoop-like "shared nothing" big-data cluster with GPFS as the file system - so you potentially get the best of Hadoop and GPFS, together, and with IBM support.
