  • 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.”
