A proven fact is that Canonical is continuously growing on multiple levels, such as the constant innovation and development pushed into Ubuntu, as well as successfully creating enterprise-level full-fledged tools (like Landscape) and contributing to widely known and appreciated enterprise-oriented software platforms (such as OpenStack).
Furthermore, it seems that Canonical is constantly pursuing new and new partnerships, with the main purpose of landing, integrating and/or contributing to powerful tools, allowing both users and developers to enjoy a professional modern computer experience.
Today, October 16th 2012, Inktank announced an exciting partnership with Canonical, partnership aimed at further improvements on and integration of Ceph in the upcoming Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal.
Along with its integration into the Linux kernel, Ceph has been already landed in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, consequently, the mentioned partnership continues Ceph's availability on Ubuntu.
Kyle MacDonald, VP of Cloud at Canonical, stated: "We see a lot of interest for Ceph, because as a storage backend for OpenStack Volume (Cinder) it can scale easily and provides the needed redundancy to keep the data safe. Canonical has partnered with Inktank to offer enterprise support for Ceph, as well as to provide multiple provisioning options to ensure the storage solution is easy to deploy across different environments".
Bryan Bogensberger, President and COO at Inktank, continues: "Our engineers continue to collaborate with the open source community to expand provisioning options for Ceph, enabling organizations of all sizes to modernize their storage infrastructure".
Inktank is the company that delivers Ceph, a scalable, open-source and distributed storage system, platform capable of auto-scaling to the exabyte level, self-healing and self-managing.
