      Come on IBM, do the right thing, make basic GPFS (basic=up to 2TB) part of RHEL. Just like Intel, IBM has no market vision.

        You sure they didn't do to IBM what McDonnell Douglas did to Boeing[0]?
        I don't think so either, but it would be great for everyone but the bean-counters if they actually did.

        In a clash of corporate cultures, where Boeing’s engineers and McDonnell Douglas’s bean-counters went head-to-head, the smaller company won out. The result was a move away from expensive, ground-breaking engineering and toward what some called a more cut-throat culture, devoted to keeping costs down and favoring upgrading older models at the expense of wholesale innovation. Only now, with the 737 indefinitely grounded, are we beginning to see the scale of its effects.

        “The fatal fault line was the McDonnell Douglas takeover,” says Clive Irving, author of Jumbo: The Making of the Boeing 747. “Although Boeing was supposed to take over McDonnell Douglas, it ended up the other way around.”

            That would be hilarious given that RHEL is opposed to out of tree kernel modules. GPFS is not only out of tree, but closed source C++.

              2TB for a parallel filesystem? Did you perhaps mean 2PB?

                IBM, thanks for absorbing and destroying Red Hat. You are becoming worse than Microsoft.

                Soon, Microsoft buys Canonical and rebrands as Microsoft Linux division. Anyway, they are their sex slaves now.

                  the problem i see:
                  they are destroying the redhat brand to be replaced by the ibm name brand

                  but for me, the ibm brand is dead, no interesting products left.
                  they should keep the much higher known and loved redhat brand name...

                    There is always Lustre for those who want more. :P
