Acquired by Red Hat in May 2014, we are a distributed team made up of about fifty storage, distributed computing and open source experts. We are on a mission to transform the storage industry by driving the widespread adoption of software-defined storage with Ceph.
We share the passionate belief that Ceph is The Future of Storage. Ceph was developed by our brilliant but humble founder, Sage Weil, from the beginning, to solve the big problems of storage.
As the Ceph community grew, Inktank was created to help others efficiently evaluate, adopt and operate Ceph storage clusters. We think Ceph is awesome, and we want to make it easy for everyone to experience the transformative power of Ceph.
Ease of administration, reduced cost, and the ability to scale to exabytes can only be achieved with distributed, scale-out architectures based on open-source software, running on commodity hardware. We want to help you manage your storage in ways pioneered by Google and Amazon by delivering enterprise-grade Ceph products and services, and partnering with you every step of the way.
Our goal is to help customers scale their storage to the exabyte level and beyond in a cost-effective way, in the process turning Ceph into the Linux of storage. We would like to get to know you while enjoying our time together along the way.
