SSUG::Digital: 013 – Event driven data management and security using Spectrum Scale Clustered Watch Folder and File Audit Logging (Held in conjunction with CIUK)

4th December 2020 @ 16:00 - 17:30 GMT

Spectrum Scale provides various methods for automated data management: The Policy Engine enables rule-based data placement and data management. File Audit Logging  enables you to audit file accesses for compliance reasons. The Clustered Watch folder feature enables you to watch and respond to file system activity.  This session starts with a customer talk by DESY about their use of the policy engine to automate data-intensive workflows. Then IBM provides an overview of File Audit Logging and Clustered Watch along with use cases and recent architectural enhancements with examples.
