Sage was part of a research team that developed the first working prototype of the Ceph distributed file system in 2004. In the past 10 years, he has stewarded the growth of the Ceph community project as part of his dedication in developing a disruptive, resilient and scalable storage alternative to costly enterprise proprietary storage systems. With the team, Sage developed key Ceph features such as the CRUSH algorithm and the RADOS object store capability that is the foundation of Ceph software-defined storage technology.
