Today, we’re proud to announce the availability of Red Hat’s Inktank Ceph Enterprise 1.2, a solution based on the Firefly release from the Ceph community. This latest version brings some major new features to enterprises – ones we believe will both further cement Ceph’s position as a leading storage solution for OpenStack infrastructure while promoting […]

Calamari was started in the summer of 2013 with the goal of creating a Ceph management platform that, while not necessary to run Ceph, would make it easier and more efficient to do so. It’s exciting to see the project open-sourced with so many eager to contribute. The vision for Calamari is to provide 5 […]

By now you’ve no doubt heard we were acquired by Red Hat last month, so our coming-out party of sorts? This year’s OpenStack Summit in Atlanta. And boy, do we have a lot planned… Not only will our executives be exhibiting at the Inktank booth (Booth E2), both Inktank and Red Hat speakers and customers […]

Last week in San Francisco, we attended the 2014 Red Hat Summit. This event, in its tenth year, is a gathering of Red Hat customers and partners looking for information and best practices that help them build better infrastructure. This show has been on our hit list for a while, but after the release of […]

We know time is at a premium, and we also know there’s a thirst for Ceph knowledge. That’s why we’ve put together a series of 10-minute, on-demand webinars designed both to fit into hectic schedules and to deliver the targeted Ceph information you’re looking for. Kyle Bader, Inktank’s very own Senior Solutions Architect, is at […]

Since our inception, we’ve helped enterprises across the span–major financial institutions, service providers, Fortune 100 companies–harness Ceph’s transformative power to radically improve the economics and management of their storage. Ceph was designed to enable customers to build and maintain multi-petabyte-scale clusters while providing such enterprise-level features as no single point of failure and the ability […]

Many customers ask, “How do I best configure the hardware in my environment for Ceph?” Inktank is in a unique position to help answer this question, because we’ve been helping many customers evaluate and deploy Ceph into production environments for block and object storage at major financial institutions, large and small service providers, and public […]

Support for multi-site operations is one of the most sought after Ceph features. If you’re an enterprise, you may want to store your data in multiple locations to ensure business continuity in the case of a regional outage. If you’re a service provider deploying a public object storage service, multiple sites can help provide the […]


Last fall, when we launched Inktank Ceph Enterprise, our flagship product, our goal was to shake up the storage industry by bringing the flexibility and power of open source to enterprises who understand that existing storage solutions won’t scale much longer.

A Guest Blogpost from John Mao, Product Marketing, Calxeda Wimpy a good thing? For CPU cores? Maybe so…. Now, I’m not exactly a fan of the term wimpy—the voice in this 80s trash bag commercial tends to haunt me—but in his research note last Wednesday called “Are Wimpy Cores Good for Brawny Storage?”, Paul Teich of Moor Insights & […]
