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. ®
