sambaXP 2020 Retrospective: The Samba Files Server in IBM Spectrum Scale (Ingo Meents)

In this sambaXP 2020 talk Ingo Meents presents use cases and requirements of Enterprise customers for Samba Files Server in IBM Spectrum Scale. Meents is Protocol Tribe Lead at IBM Germany Research & Development GmbH. 

Abstract

IBM has deployed Samba as part of file storage solutions for many years now. The current product of IBM is called Spectrum Scale and it delivers clustered Samba to a world-wide base of Enterprise customers on top of IBM's clustered file system known as gpfs.

The first part of the talk describes selected requirements, use cases and enhancements this mission has been driving over the last years. This includes topics like file contention, access control lists, and Mac support.

The second part of the talk addresses the new challenging requirements with respect to identity mapping like the server side group resolution for NFS clients and the increasing demand to add sssd to the clustered Samba server nodes.

About the "sambaXP 2020 Retrospective"

In this series we will present recordings of the sambaXP 2020 in the coming weeks. These were selected by SerNet's "Team Samba". The 19th edition of the international conference on the open source software Samba took place from 26 - 28 May 2020 for the first time exclusively in digital form. Due to the changed event format and the use of an online conference platform, organizer SerNet is able to offer all talks as videos for viewing (link).
