The IBM Spectrum Scale GUI provides an easy way to configure and monitor various features that are available with the IBM Spectrum Scale system using an IBM Elastic Storage Server (ESS). 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 Redpaper provides detailed information about the ESS GUI features. This edition applies to IBM Elastic Storage Server version 5.2..
