A Deployment Guide for IBM Spectrum Scale Unified File and Object Storage
Because of the explosion of unstructured data that is generated by
individuals and organizations, a new storage paradigm that is called object storage
has been developed. Object storage stores data in a flat namespace that
scales to trillions of objects. The design of object storage also
simplifies how users access data, supporting new types of applications
and allowing users to access data by using various methods, including
mobile devices and web applications. Data distribution and management
are also simplified, allowing greater collaboration across the globe.
Swift is an emerging open source object storage software platform that
is widely used for cloud storage. IBM® Spectrum Scale, which is based on
IBM General Parallel File System (IBM GPFS™) technology, is a
high-performance and proven product that is used to store data for
thousands of mission-critical commercial installations worldwide.
Throughout this IBM Redpaper™ publication, IBM Spectrum™ Scale is used
to refer to GPFS. The examples in this paper are based on IBM Spectrum
