Sage Weil

Ceph made its debut at the 2006 USENIX Conference 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.

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.

OpenStack

OpenStack SwiftSwiftNeutron
Representational state transfer (RESTful) gateways that expose the object storage layer as an interface compatible with Amazon S3 or 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), INFINIDAT (InfiniBox) and Pure Storage.
