IBM Whips Up New Virtualization System
Using file virtualization to analyze and identify data, IBM says GPFS will support policy-based file operations

IBM says it's gonna start shipping a new General Parallel File System (GPFS) that acts like a search engine to identify and migrate files between different storage pools, including tape, and feed high-speed BI and scientific computers.

GPFS tightly integrates policy-driven information lifecycle management functionality into the file system. Using file virtualization to analyze and identify data, IBM says GPFS will supports policy-based file operations on billions of files in hours instead of weeks.

Apparently IBM used a pre-release to scan a billion files in less than three hours in an internal performance test. It figures to use parallelization to tweak those results, currently something like 130 GB/sec on a 2PB file system.

GPFS run on both AIX and Linux on both IBM Power-based p systems and its x86 boxes and sorts through both structured and unstructured data.
