Support for the open source distributed storage technology will allow Flexiant's customers to store their customer data including disks and images on the Ceph distributed storage system. The benefits include reduced hardware costs and increased scalability by eliminating centralized storage.
Support for Ceph is part of Flexiant's mission to partner with best of breed companies. Bligh continued, "Storage is a hard problem. Thus we made the choice to work with storage specialists, such as the Ceph development team; development of an entire storage stack in house was not something Flexiant wanted to focus on. We continue to offer the leading cloud management solution and work with specialist companies across the cloud market."
