GPFS Scans 10 Billion Files in 43 Minutes

By using a small cluster of ten IBM xSeries servers, IBM’s cluster file system (GPFS), and by placing file system metadata on a new solid-state storage appliance from Violin Memory, IBM Research demonstrated, for the first time, the ability to do policy-guided storage management (daily tasks such as file selection for backup, migration, etc.) for a 10-billion-file environment in 43
minutes. This new record shatters previous record by factor of 37. GPFS also set the previous record in 2007.
