This IBM® Redpaper is a blueprint for configuration, testing results, and tuning guidelines for running SAS workloads on Red Hat Enterprise Linux using IBM Spectrum® Scale and IBM Elastic Storage System (ESS) 3000. LAB Validation was conducted with the Red Hat Linux nodes running with the SAS simulator scripts connected to the IBM Spectrum Scale and IBM ESS 3000.

The simultaneous workloads are simulated across multiple x-86 nodes running with Red Hat Linux to determine scalability against the IBM Spectrum Scale clustered file system and ESS 3000 array. This paper will outline the architecture, configuration details and performance tuning to maximize SAS application performance with the IBM Spectrum Scale and IBM ESS 3000.

This document is intended to facilitate the deployment and configuration of the SAS applications using IBM Spectrum Scale and IBM Elastic Storage® System (ESS) 3000.
