Petabyte Scale Storage

March 20, 2010

I’ve never come across the Ceph filesystem project before but it is Open Source and it has just been merged in for the 2.6.34 linux kernel. It claims “Ceph is an open source distributed file system capable of managing many petabytes of storage with ease.” It looks like there is still quite a bit of development work going on but it could be very interesting in the future if it manages to fulfill all its goals.
