Linux kernel 2.6.34After only three months of the release of Linux kernel 2.6.33 Linus Torvalds announced the release of Linux 2.6.34. As Linus states: “Nothing very interesting here, which is just how I like it.”. The new 2.6.34 introduces two major additions: distributed FS Ceph and the flash devices FS LogFS which targets flash memory-based devices and solid state drives (SSD). The Ceph Project based kernel client claims to add an Object Storage Device system (OSD) which is to distribute data through multiple storage nodes enabling the capability to manage petabytes of distributed storage.
