As an academic, you sign up for it under the IBM "scholars program".  It
comes at no cost but unsupported (well, best-efforts support via the GPFS
mailing list).

If you want support or want a commercial license, then you have to pay
money.

The "official" GPFS hardware support matrix is pretty tight, but if you
don't care about support, you should find that it will run on pretty much
any sort of disk hardware.
