[gpfsug-discuss] GPFS AFM experience

I've recently adopted a small two node GPFS cluster which is likely to 
be relocated to an off-site datacentre in the near future and I'm 
concerned that latency times are going to be impacted for on-site users.

My reading of AFM is that an Independent Writer cache held on-site could 
mitigate this and was wondering whether anybody had any experience of 
using AFM caches in this manner.
