PETRA III is DESY's largest ring accelerator and the most brilliant storage-ring-based X-ray radiation source in the world. With its recent extension, new and faster detectors are used for the data acquisition. They exceed previous detectors in terms of data rate and volume; this is highly demanding for the underlying storage system. This talk will present the challenges we faced, the new infrastructure and services based on IBM's GPFS and our first experiences with it.
