When open source software gets used in production grade environments, commercial support businesses tend to show up. That's exactly what is now happening with the open source Ceph distributed storage filesystem.
Ceph is now backed by Inktank, a commercial venture led by Sage Weil, founder of Ceph. The company had originally incorporated under the name Ceph Inc, but decided to take a different route in order to help preserve the integrity of the open source project.
