Parent article: The Ceph filesystem
This sounds a lot like Google FS, to the point where I'm sort of missing a comparison.
Could it be that the Ceph author read the GFS paper <http://labs.google.com/papers/gfs.html>
and reimplemented the ideas?
... not that is a bad thing, many great pieces of code have been written as implementations
of other peoples ideas, some times better than the original.
