We made some news today about our intent to acquire Inktank. It’s pretty exciting news – it means Red Hat Storage, already an attractive offering (if we do say so ourselves!), is going to benefit from the world-class object and block storage capabilities of Inktank Ceph Enterprise. By combining GlusterFS’ file and object capabilities with Inktank’s block and object capabilities, we’re going to enable users and developers to innovate with some of the best open source storage software in the market, all while creating a very competitive alternative to traditional proprietary storage systems from companies like EMC.

A little more about Ceph

Inktank hit the scene with Ceph back in 2012. Ceph is a scalable, open source, software-defined storage system that runs on commodity hardware. It was developed by Inktank's founder and chief technology officer, Sage Weil, as a replacement for legacy storage systems, and provides a unified solution for cloud computing environments. Ceph has been helping its customers scale their storage to the Exabyte level and beyond.

Inktank's customers include Cisco, CERN and Deutsche Telekom, and its partners include Alcatel-Lucent and Dell.
