Enterprises and organizations are creating, analyzing and keeping more data than ever before. Islands of data are being created all over the organization and in the cloud creating complexity, difficult to manage systems and increasing costs. Those that can deliver insights faster while managing rapid infrastructure growth are the leaders in their industry. In delivering those insights, an organization’s underlying information architecture must support the hybrid cloud, big data and artificial intelligence (AI) workloads along with traditional applications while ensuring security, reliability, data efficiency and high performance. IBM Spectrum Scale™ meets these challenges as a parallel high-performance solution with global file and object data access for managing data at scale with the distinctive ability to perform archive and analytics in place.
