    Inktank and Redhat to open source Calamari, the Ceph web interface

    You might have heard this already but Redhat made an annoucement
    last week that they will be acquiring Inktank, the company behind

    Inktank steered Ceph’s development, offered training and provided
    support through an entreprise package which included Calamari: a web
    interface to have insight on what is going on inside your cluster.
    You can have a peek at what Calamari looks like here – in a session
    from Portland’s Openstack Summit.

    Now, what’s interesting is that prior to this announcement, Calamari
    was closed source and would only be available as part of Inktank’s
    entreprise package. The fact that Calamari was closed source resulted in
    several open source alternatives spawning left and right – some of them

    I’m glad that Calamari will be open sourced, hopefully this means the
    community will focus their efforts on one initiative. Having personally
    worked on both python-cephclient and kraken, the programmer in
    me is also curious as to how Inktank developed it. I can’t wait.

In my last blog post, I wrote about the single client implementation I created to start out with. Over the last several weeks, I’ve […]
