Who's the "storage vendor"?

https://sourceforge.net/blog/sourceforge-infrastructure-and-service-restoration/

Given this is Ceph, and Inktank was bought by Red Hat just over a year ago, does this mean the "storage vendor" was Red Hat? However, the page suggests that everything is open source, mentioning CentOS but not RedHat.

Or is the "storage vendor" just a hardware vendor who sells vanilla servers and disks, and Sourceforge are running Ceph on top of it themselves? But in that case, why consult with the storage vendor if there is a Ceph issue?

Or is someone other than Red Hat selling and supporting Ceph appliances?

Whatever it is, it would be interesting to know.
