The IBM Spectrum Scale solution provided for up to 11x better throughput results than EMC Isilon for Spectrum Protect (TSM) workloads. Using published data, Edison compared a solution comprised of EMC® Isilon® against an IBM® Spectrum Scale™ solution. (IBM Spectrum Scale was formerly IBM® General Parallel File System™ or IBM® GPFS™, also known as code name Elastic Storage). For both solutions, IBM® Spectrum Protect™ (formerly IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager or IBM® TSM®) is used as a common workload performing the backups to target storage systems evaluated.
