Ceph Storage Gets Solid Endorsement, Certification from Red Hat

Ceph, an open source, software-defined storage system that is starting to make a big impact in cloud deployments, is already well-known to many Ubuntu Linux users and administrators.  Now, with a new version 1.1 of Ceph Enterprise it's also certified for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. That platform is Red Hat's offering for building hybrid clouds based on OpenStack, and will give Ceph Enterprise more momentum.

Ceph is a massively scalable, open source, software-defined storage system that is playing a big role in many cloud computing deployments, as Patrick McGarry made clear in a guest post on OStatic.  He noted: "Ceph, in particular, is one of these interesting pieces that plugs into both CloudStack and OpenStack.  It has the potential to transform the storage industry just like the use of commodity hardware transformed the cloud industry.  Built on the idea of using commodity hardware, Ceph's innovative approach to reliability and near-infinite scalability delivers a storage platform unlike any other."
