Made in IBM Labs: Researchers Demonstrate Breakthrough Storage Performance for Big Data Applications

*IBM GPFS Storage Technology Scans 10 Billion Files in 43 Minutes*

Growing at unprecedented scales, this advance unifies data environments on a single platform, instead of being distributed across several systems that must be separately managed. It also dramatically reduces and simplifies data management tasks, allowing more information to be stored in the same technology, rather than continuing to buy more and more storage. (more…)
