The initial setup was complex. We had to prepare a lot of the requirements to install the Spectrum Scale. It is not straightforward. We had to ensure that the foundation for the install and that the installation process was proper. On average for large clusters, the deployment can take one week. View full review »

I have not personally installed this solution but it is my understanding that it is pretty simple. There have been no problems that I have heard of. The deployment can take a few days. It depends on different phases because you have to meet with the customer and it may influence what you are going to do. Installing it is very quick and then you move into the testing phase, which takes a little longer. View full review »

They should probably simply the Red Hat implementation portion. View full review »

The initial setup was pretty straightforward. You had to learn a little bit of new nomenclatures, and what this is called and what that is called. Otherwise, once we got it up and running, it needs very little care. View full review »
