The Tendrl project is a community of developers who aim to solve the central management problems for software defined storage. Mrugesh Karnik (brainfunked on IRC) is the architect. Nishanth Thomas and Rohan Kanade (irc: k4n0) lead the development. There are also contributors from the Ceph and Gluster communities and the aim is to leverage existing successful open source projects that have solved key aspects of the problems we aim to address.
To get involved, please join the discussion on either IRC (internet relay chat) or on the mailing list.
