Inktank Works with Alcatel-Lucent to Integrate Ceph Storage in CloudBand

Inktank, the company delivering Ceph – the massively scalable, open source, software-defined storage system, today announced it is teaming with Alcatel-Lucent to help service providers manage their storage infrastructure within the cloud.

The Future of Storage, Ceph is being used within Alcatel-Lucent’s carrier-grade CloudBand solution which enables communications service providers to bring the benefits of the cloud to their own networks and business operations while offering cloud services with the security, reliability and quality enterprises and consumers expect from telecommunications networks. Part of the CloudBand Nodes supplying compute, storage and more within an operator’s distributed network, Ceph provides massive storage scalability and ease of integration, making it the ideal storage system for cloud environments. In addition, it allows Alcatel-Lucent to offer highly scalable object storage as a service.

Ceph supports the provisioning of CloudBand Nodes within hours at a customer site to provide service providers with revolutionary storage capabilities for building and managing their own clouds. Inktank’s team of Ceph experts will provide support for CloudBand customers, enabling them to maximize the benefits of the Ceph storage platform.

“We are committed to creating a new operational model for our customers with our CloudBand Node products,” said Dor Skuler, Vice President of Cloud Solutions at Alcatel-Lucent. “With Inktank we are able to offer superior storage performance within the operator’s distributed network architecture at a low total cost of ownership.”

“Simply put, Ceph is providing the massive scalability, flexibility, and ease of integration needed in different types of cloud environments,” said Bryan Bogensberger, CEO of Inktank. “Inktank is pleased to be working with Alcatel-Lucent to bring the revolutionary power of Ceph storage to CloudBand’s telecom customers who are building the cloud services of tomorrow.”
