IBM GPFS - Are you Ready?
In this short video presentation at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5ELxaZpo4Q, Scott Fadden provides a brief overview of IBM GPFS. The GPFS parallel file system is currently being utilized across multiple industries worldwide to manage the growth of data. For more Information on the IBM GPFS, refer to the website:
Also, visit the IBM GPFS WIKI which contains the latest information regarding the solution, implementation, and technical information. The WIKI can be accessed at:
Recently the ITSO announced this residency to develop how to content to building and managing Linux clusters for Cloud computing, analytics, mobile, etc. The residency information can be found at:
The goal of this residency is to show that IBM's PowerLinux cluster solutions (hardware and software) deliver significant value to clients in need of cost-effective, highly scalable, and robust solutions for BigData, analytics, Clouds, etc.
This residency project compliments the recently announced IBM Platform Computing Solutions Reference Architectures and Best Practices, SG24-8169 publication which provides how to details on how to deploy solutions for technical computing highlighting IBM Platform Computing, IBM iDataPlex, and IBM GPFS. The draft can be found at:
Thus far, you have read a few of the IBM Redbooks discussing topics with IBM Platform Computing for managing cluster solutions showing integrated solutions such as IBM System x, IBM Storage, IBM GPFS and of course IBM Platform Computing offerings. Please let me know if there are any topics you would like team to deliver content in the upcoming residency project. Your feedback is valuable.

I encourage anyone interested to participate in the IBM Platform Computing Solutions Reference Architecture and Best Practices to submit your nomination for consideration.
There are already multiple Redbooks publications, and a few RedPapers on different technical challenges which IBM Platform Computing is addressing via their solutions. If you have any suggestions for topics for this residency, do not hesitate on adding comments to this blog.
During the residency, the team will provide reference architectures and best practices for deploying the Platform Computing solutions. Moreover, the team will implement and test Platform Computing solutions software stack focusing on specific industry solutions (engineering, life sciences, financial services, business analytics, oli and gas) leveraging the comprehensive set of IBM System x rack servers, IBM BladeCenter, IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS). This IBM Redbooks publication will demonstrate and document that the combination of IBM's System x, IBM GPFS and IBM Platform Computing solutions deliver significant value to clients in need of cost-effective, highly scalable, and robust solutions. IBM depth of solutions can help the clients plan a foundation to face challenges in how to manage, maintain, enhance, provision computing environments to analyze, for example, the growing volumes of data within their organizations.
