The IBM Spectrum Scale GUI provides an easy way to configure and monitor various features that are available with the IBM Spectrum Scale system. The IBM Spectrum Scale GUI is a web application that runs on common web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. It uses Java Script and AJAX technologies to enable smooth and desktop-like interfacing. Therefore, no client-side installation is required to use the GUI.

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication provides a broad understanding of the architecture and features of the IBM Spectrum Scale GUI. It includes information about how to install and configure the GUI as well as in depth information about using the GUI options. The primary audience for this paper includes both experienced and new users of IBM Spectrum Scale.
