Seagate will hand over some of its Kinetic Storage platform to the world at the coming OpenStack summit in Vancouver, Canada, The Register has learned.
Kinetic is the object storage platform Seagate has built to make it possible to so useful work with its Ethernet-equipped disk drives.

By cutting arrays and file systems out of the loop, Seagate reckons it can save users some cash and also speed things up.
