Integration of IBM Aspera Sync with IBM Spectrum Scale: Protecting and Sharing Files Globally
Software Defined Storage

Redpaper, published 29 Mar 2019

Economic globalization requires data to be available globally. With most data stored in file systems, solutions to make this data globally available become more important. Files that are in file systems can be protected or shared by replicating these files to another file system that is in a remote location. The remote location might be just around the corner or in a different country. Therefore, the techniques that are used to protect and share files must account for long distances and slow and unreliable wide area network (WAN) connections. IBM® Spectrum Scale is a scalable clustered file ... [more]
