[gpfsug-discuss] GPS Native RAID on linux?

I've got some x3650s...

I want to do GNR. Is this a "special" feature that only IBM can unlock for x86?

I want it for my x86. Now.

Someone tell me which bit of the manual I've missed?

We have a new GSS (not yet installed, waiting on power).  The GPFS
nodes are what appear to be fairly ordinary x3650 M4 systems.

Despite having Redhat licenses, I expect us to use our standard CentOS
6.4 on these systems (using the same update mirror and baseline
configuration as our other systems).

Or perhaps the question meant purchasing GPFS/GNR separate from a GSS
purchase.  I have no idea about that.

I've never been lost; I was once bewildered for three days, but never lost!
