Red Hat, the open source software provider, has just announced that it is buying Inktank, a developer of open-source storage systems, for $175 million in cash. Red Hat says it will combine Inktank’s primary product, Ceph, with its own GlusterFS-based storage offering. Red Hat says the deal will make it into the largest provider of open software-defined storage across object, block and file system storage.

This is publicly-traded Red Hat’s ninth acquisition.

More to come.
