The company spoke about its General Parallel File System-Shared Nothing Cluster (GPFS-SNC) at the Supercomputing 2010 conference in New Orleans on Friday. The system is twice as fast at processing business analytics as a Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) cluster, according to IBM’s own internal testing.
