Hi all,

I'm the systems manager for the University of Edinburgh's research 
compute and data services. We use GPFS for two primary purposes:
  1. HPC storage (offering high performance GPFS to our HPC cluster 
worker nodes)
  2. General purpose (unstructured) large scale storage services 
(offering CIFS, NFS and SSHFS directly to our end users)

Our services are used across the University, and so we have a very broad 
range of users and use cases.

We've been using GPFS since 2007, and have picked up plenty of war 
stories and success stories along the way!
