This Redpaper Blueprint is intended to facilitate the deployment and configuration of the IBM® Spectrum Scale based high performance storage solutions for the scalable Data and AI solutions on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The Blueprint presents configuration, testing results, and tuning guidelines for running the IBM Spectrum® Scale based high performance storage solutions for the Data and AI workloads on AWS. The LAB Validation was conducted with the Red Hat Linux nodes to IBM Spectrum Scale using the various Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances. Simultaneous workloads are simulated across multiple Amazon EC2 nodes running with Red Hat Linux to determine scalability against the IBM Spectrum Scale clustered file system. This paper will outline the architecture, configuration details and performance tuning to maximize the Data and AI application performance with IBM Spectrum Scale on AWS.
