IBM Spectrum Scale Valuable Features

Senior Expert Solution Architect at a comms service provider with 10,001+ employees
GPFS monitoring is the best feature. The performance is very good and so is the scalability. The NFS CL solution is impressive because if you have a power loss for any reason from the consumer host, the system switches seamlessly to the next available node in this cluster. This happens without any interruption in the data stream, reading or writing. When the system is coming back from the maintenance or the reboot cycle, the system switches automatically back to the initial host. This is very good and very friendly. I have never seen this before when comparing to other solutions such as NetApp, and Dell EMC Unity. NetApp is also very good for NFS solutions. View full review »
