In this Intel Chip Chat podcast, Dan Ferber, Open Source Server Based Storage Technologist at Intel and Ross Turk, Director of Product Marketing for Red Hat describe how Ceph plays a critical role in delivering the full enterprise capability of OpenStack. Ross explains how Ceph allows you to build storage using open source software and standard servers and disks providing a lot of flexibility and enabling you to easily scale out storage. By lowering hardware costs, lowering the vendor lock-in threshold, and enabling customers to fix and enhance their own code, open source and software defined storage (SDS) solutions are enabling the future of next generation storage.
Today ProphetStor Data Services rolled out a reference cloud computing platform with Mellanox based on the open-source projects OpenStack and Ceph. The solution leverages each company’s respective strength in software-defined-storage, state-of-the-art server hardware, and high-speed networking. Based on ProphetStor Federator SDS, this joint project addresses the key issues of OpenStack’s storage management solution as well as improving the functionality and performance of Ceph, the de facto storage backend for OpenStack.
Today Mellanox announced a set of 100Gb/s network storage performance benchmark results for Red Hat Ceph Storage and Red Hat Gluster Storage.
Today Bright Computing announced that its OpenStack management software integrates with Ceph to provide OpenStack with highly available and self-healing storage backend for volumes and objects.
Today DreamHost announced its “heartfelt congratulations and virtual high-fives all around” to the Inktank team on their acquisition by Red Hat for $190M.
In this video, Travis Rhoden from Penguin Computing describes how the Ceph distributed object storage system powers the company’s Penguin on Demand HPC Cloud offering.
