IBM Spectrum Scale (GPFS)

Commvault software provides an integrated approach to protect your GPFS data, in the GPFS shared-disk architecture and the complex parallel I/O operations between GPFS nodes and disks.

You install the Commvault software on one or more nodes in the GPFS cluster. These nodes are referred to as access nodes.

Key Features

  • Distributed backup and restores, which run in parallel on multiple data access nodes, for optimal sharing of the backup load

  • Fault-tolerant model that redistributes task loads when a data access node fails

  • Optimized scan uses mmapplypolicy by default for GPFS volumes

  • Snapshot-based scans and backups that offload processing from the source GPFS volumes for improved performance
