We use it a lot for sharing file systems between several Red Hat and AIX servers. It is mostly for different lines of business. It works pretty well. We have been using it for almost a decade now. It is actually one of the better products of IBM. We have seen applications come and go, but Spectrum Scale is one of those things where we have had more customers move into the product than other vendors' solutions. View full review »

It performs well. We use it for our data over multiple systems. At the same time, it is a shared file system. It works pretty well for the most part. We have an on-premise infrastructure. It is basically shared disks. They run three of them through the network. So, we set up NSD disks on all the machines. All the nodes can write to them, and we can have as many nodes as we want to put into the environment. That part works well. We have approximately 500 instances. View full review »

We are using it for our SAS work and data areas. It is performing very well for us. We have data centers onsite and offsite (for whenever we do DR failover). Right now, we manage just one instance of it. View full review »
