Integrate the WOS GPFS Bridge with GPFS
The Web Object Scaler (WOS) is object based storage machine. You can write files to the WOS via interface nodes that translate between NFS and WOS and CIFS and WOS. Software exists that let the WOS move data to GPFS where it can be accessed on large clusters. This way a researcher can put data into WOS from his workstation and the so called GPFS Bridge moves data automatically into the GPFS system. Alls this is documented and available. We would need you to assemble the software pieces and show that the above is actually working.
Check out GPFS a parallel files system from IBM and WOS the object storage from Data Direct Networks by asking Google.
