RHCS is based on the Nautilus version of the Ceph open source project. It is designed to work on commercial hardware (COTS). But with petabyte-level processing capabilities, you will most likely use it on data-farms, data-centers and the cloud.

For example, you can use it to deploy object storage that is compatible with Amazon's petified Simplified Storage Service (S3). Red Hat states that, in recent internal testing, RHCS 4 has provided twice the performance for high write workloads, making it more suitable to meet demand.
