IBM Builds on Hadoop with New Storage Architecture

“At the Supercomputing 2010 conference, IBM pulled back the
curtain on a new storage architecture that, according to Big Blue,
can double analytics processing speed for big data and the
cloud.

“Created by scientists at IBM Research – Almaden, the new
General Parallel File System-Shared Nothing Cluster (GPFS-SNC)
architecture was built on the IBM (NYSE: IBM) GPFS and incorporates
the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) to provide high
availability through advanced clustering technologies, dynamic file
system management and advanced data replication techniques.

“The cluster “shares nothing,” in a distributed computing
architecture in which each node is self-sufficient. The GPFS-SNC
divides tasks between independent nodes and no one waits on the
other.”
