Bad news, Trump. NASty storage is pretty popular, too

GPFS...

...well more correctly IBM Spectrum Scale Storage, is a block based protocol (unless you're using the built in NFS bridge), putting the onus of working out where the storage for files is onto the client.

If you're taking about it working like a NAS, then you've probably come across it in it's SONAS storage appliance persona, not in it's GPFS client/server software defined storage persona.
