High Performance Storage System

HPSS Logo
Incremental Scalability
Based on storage needs and deployment schedules, HPSS scales incrementally by adding computer, network and storage resources. A single HPSS namespace can scale from petabytes of data to exabytes of data, from millions of files to billions of files, and from a few file-creates per second to thousands of file-creates per second.

HPSS Services  :   Consulting Services

As part of IBM's Global Services organization, the HPSS team in Houston offers a variety of services, including storage systems consulting services. HPSS systems engineers collectively represent over one hundred years of experience dealing with mass storage system deployment, hierarchical storage management, data storage system technology insertion and sunsetting, data repository migration, and related requirements for customers world-wide. Using proven systems engineering methods, the engineers follow a rigorous process to analyze requirements, develop a system-level architecture, propose design alternatives, validate requirements against possible solutions identifying remaining gaps, and provide recommendations for follow-on actions and closure. Services are tailored to specific needs, including phased approaches that logically sequence tasks allowing the scope of services to be adjusted based on time and budget constraints.
