While I was in the meeting this afternoon, there was a question on what file system are my team going to use in the situation that a lot of servers require to access same data simultaneously from a SAN Storage. I immediately thought of Red Hat GFS (Global File System) which is a cluster file system.
But the old-timer system architect said otherwise, “it’s time to use IBM GPFS“. I quickly googled and found out that GPFS stands for General Parallel File System. Wow, I didn’t know that IBM also produce cluster file system.
A good place to have basic idea on IBM GPFS,
Well, it seems I’m going to learn a lot soon. Hopefully, I will be in the GPFS deployment team when the project rolls out.
