OSCON: Neil Levine of Inktank, sponsor of Ceph

The next in my series of interviews from last month’s OSCON features the ever affable Neil Levine of Inktank.   Neil, who has been with the company nearly a year, heads up product management and we talked about Ceph, the company and where its going.

Warning:  I used Youtube’s feature that is supposed to fix shaking and the result gives the video a hallucinogenic feel (Timothy Leary would approve).

Some of the ground that Neil covers:

  • Inktank as the primary sponsor of Ceph, a scale-out open source software defined storage solution
  • Other similar solutions
  • Selling to cloud devops teams rather than traditional storage teams
  • What’s next?  tiering, deeper integration with OpenStack, pushing out more APIs to build up their dev community etc.

Extra-credit reading/viewing:

  • Press Release:  University of Hawaii at Manoa Deploys Ceph Storage With OpenStack
  • OSCON 2013 – My video playlist: Enstratius, Dasein, Citrix, Mark Hinkle’s keynote, Apigee, Inktank, OpenShift, AppDynamics and Puppet

Pau for now….
