Object storage

object storagestorage deviceobject-based
In computing, Ceph (pronounced or ) is a free-software storage platform, implements object storage on a single distributed computer cluster, and provides interfaces for object-, block- and file-level storage.
This does not include engineering from systems vendors like DataDirect Networks (WOS), Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage, Centera, Atmos, HDS (Hitachi Content Platform (HCP)), IBM, NetApp (StorageGRID), Redhat GlusterFS, cloud services vendors like Amazon (AWS S3 in 2006), Microsoft (Microsoft Azure), Oracle (Oracle Cloud) and Google (Google Cloud Storage in 2010), or open-source development at Lustre, OpenStack (Swift), MogileFS, Ceph and OpenIO.

Sage Weil

Sage Weil
Ceph made its debut at the 2006 USENIX Confernece on Operating System Design (OSDI 2006) in a paper by Weil, Brandt, Miller, Long and Maltzahn; a more detailed description was published the following year in Sage Weil's doctoral dissertation,.
Sage Weil (born March 17, 1978) is the founder and chief architect of Ceph, a distributed storage platform.

Inktank Storage

Inktank
In 2012, Weil created Inktank Storage for professional services and support for Ceph.
Inktank Storage was the lead development contributor and financial sponsor company behind the open source Ceph distributed file system.

Gluster

The product was first marketed as Red Hat Storage Server, but in early 2015 renamed to be Red Hat Gluster Storage since Red Hat has also acquired the Ceph file system technology.

OpenStack

OpenStack SwiftSwiftOpenStack
The RADOS Gateway also exposes the object store as a RESTful interface which can present as both native Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift APIs. The block device can be virtualized, providing block storage to virtual machines, in virtualization platforms such as Apache CloudStack, OpenStack, OpenNebula, Ganeti, and Proxmox Virtual Environment.
In addition to local Linux server storage, it can use storage platforms including Ceph, CloudByte, Coraid, EMC (ScaleIO, VMAX, VNX and XtremIO), GlusterFS, Hitachi Data Systems, IBM Storage (IBM DS8000, Storwize family, SAN Volume Controller, XIV Storage System, and GPFS), Linux LIO, NetApp, Nexenta, Nimble Storage, Scality, SolidFire, HP (StoreVirtual and 3PAR StoreServ families) and Pure Storage.

Moose File System

MooseFS
The MooseFS follows similar design principles as Fossil (file system), Google File System, Lustre or Ceph.

RozoFS

Rozo provides an open source POSIX filesystem, built on top of distributed file system architecture similar to Google File System, Lustre or Ceph.

Amazon S3

Red Hat

Red HatRed Hat, Inc.JBoss
In April 2014, Red Hat purchased Inktank, bringing the majority of Ceph development in-house. The charter advisory board includes Ceph community members from global IT organizations that are committed to the Ceph project, including individuals from Canonical, CERN, Cisco, Fujitsu, Intel, Red Hat, SanDisk, and SUSE.

As another example, the software which Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects use for their underlying infrastructure is a customized LAMP stack with additions such as Linux Virtual Server (LVS) for load balancing and Ceph and Swift for distributed object storages.

SUSE Enterprise Storage

SUSE Enterprise Storage (SES) is a Linux-based computer data storage product developed by SUSE and built on Ceph technology.

Cuneiform
If run in distributed mode it drives a POSIX-compliant distributed file system like Gluster or Ceph (or a FUSE integration of some other file system, e.g., HDFS).
