Submission + - Red Hat Acquires Inktank for $175 Million (Mark Shuttleworth backed!) (eweek.com)

darthcamaro writes: Red Hat today announced an all cash deal worth $175 million to acquire Inktank, the lead commercial sponsor behind the Ceph open-source distributed filesystem. As part of the deal, Inktank is now set to open-source its proprietary Calamari monitoring system for Ceph. The deal could prove to be a real boon for Inktank's investors which include Dreamhost and Red Hat's Linux rival, Mark Shuttleworth. The fate of Gluster however is not a concern as Red Hat sees Ceph and Gluster as being complementary storage filesystem technologies.
