Distributed File System solution:

Most organizations are not only facing an explosion of data, but also find themselves in need to support more applications and forms of data than ever before. Whether it be data lakes for Business Intelligence, storage for Kubernetes, media management platforms, content stores, high speed backup targets, etc.…

Based on IBM Spectrum Scale, IRIS Professional Solutions can build a single distributed file system solution designed to handle all these workloads, whether they reside on-premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment setup.

This product, based on IBM’s GPFS, can provide a single namespace that is usable for both small files and very large media files. In combination with Spectrum Connect it can provide a very stable and fast environment to deploy stateless containers, both on-premise and in the cloud. Cloud tiering can be enabled to archive older datasets, so your data always resides on the best fit for purpose storage whilst managing your TCO.

IBM Spectrum Scale:

IBM Spectrum Scale is designed for performance, availability and data growth on file, object and HDFS, plus automating storage on flash, disk, tape and in the cloud. Enterprises and organizations are creating, analyzing and keeping more data than ever before. 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 storage must support new-era big data and artificial intelligence workloads along with traditional applications while ensuring security, reliability and high performance. IBM Spectrum Scale meets these challenges as a high-performance solution for managing data at scale with the distinctive ability to perform archive and analytics in place.

It offers the same UI for many solutions and environments, for a consistent experience. It helps organizations simplify cloud complexity – and is available by entitlement to every IBM storage customer.
