Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Inktank has made its all-singing, all-dancing software-defined storage Ceph product play nicer with Red Hat.

Ceph is a massively scalable, open source, software-defined storage system. Ceph Enterprise combines Ceph for object and block storage “with a graphical manager, enhanced integration tools, and support services,” according to the firm's marketing bumf.

Ceph Enterprise 1.1 features:

  • Calamari graphical manager v1.1 which has IOPS information, an improved dashboard and better graphing support
  • Certified for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform - RHEL-OSP 4.0
  • Supports Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation - RHEV 3.3 can be a hypervisor platform for Ceph’s RADOS block device
  • Ceph is getting a minor upgrade to 0.67.5, which includes some backported fixes from the “Emperor” version of Ceph

Bryan Bogensberger, CEO of Inktank, peovided canned quotery: “Inktank is excited about being part of the RHEL ecosystem and being certified to bring enterprise-grade, software-defined storage to the RHEL customer base.”

Inktank has set up a Ceph training program, Inktank University. Courses can be face-to-face or virtual and “allow anyone to learn the implementation, operation and maintenance of Ceph systems in an instructor-led classroom setting.”

Training courses are from one day to three days in duration. ®
