Db2 pureScale environments
The Db2 pureScale Feature requires the IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS). This file system is installed and configured automatically by the Db2 pureScale Feature installer if it is not already installed. Refer to the installation prerequisites for more information about the specific version of GPFS required. For more information about GPFS, see https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/gpfs.
