Digital Transformation Accelerator Amihan Becomes Premier Member of The Ceph Foundation

Manila, Philippines (November 15, 2018) - Digital transformation accelerator Amihan has announced that it will serve as a premier member of the Ceph Foundation and its global community. As one of the Foundation’s founding members, Amihan will take part in leading the continued development of the Ceph open-source project.

A leader in the region’s technology industry, Amihan’s innovative solutions and platforms are purpose-built to push the boundaries of long term, sustainable growth by enhancing and scaling the IT framework in enterprise systems.

Ceph, an open-source software, is a unified distributed storage system providing applications with object, block, or file system interfaces for advanced storage capability. Efficient and highly scalable, Ceph can significantly lower the cost of storing large data in the cloud or on any object, block, or file system.

“Investing in open-source technology such as Ceph is a step towards a better digitized future,” said Winston Damarillo, executive chairman of Amihan. “As a premier founding member of the Ceph Foundation, Amihan is committed to working with the other members of the community in expanding the possibilities of the Ceph ecosystem.”

A top mandate of the Ceph Foundation is to setup a coordinated, vendor-neutral system to distribute financial contributions for the immediate benefit of the community. This in turn will lead to faster adoption rates, additional training for developers and users, and fruitful collaboration efforts within the greater Ceph ecosystem.

“The launch of the Ceph Foundation is a testament to the strength of a diverse open source community coming together to address the explosive growth in data storage and services," said Sage Weil, Ceph co-creator, project leader, and chief architect at Red Hat for Ceph. "We welcome Amihan's participation as part of the Foundation’s work to foster continued innovation in scale-out storage.”

The Ceph Foundation was established through the Linux Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to enabling mass innovation through open-source technologies. According to Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of the Linux Foundation, the Ceph Foundation “will be able to harness investments from a much broader group to help support the infrastructure needed” for the continued stability and growth of the Ceph project.”

Blockchain pioneer Amihan Global Strategies joins Sovrin Network as a Founding Steward

MANILA, PHILIPPINES (June 12, 2018) – The Sovrin Foundation announced the addition of Manila-based digital transformation company Amihan Global Strategies as a founding Steward and the first Steward representing the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). As a Sovrin Steward, Amihan will be an active contributor to the intellectual and infrastructural resources required to keep the Sovrin Network available and secure.

Well-known for its leadership in ASEAN blockchain innovation, Amihan’s key blockchain initiatives include a partnership with the Bankers Association of the Philippines.

“Our digital identity is a detailed story of who we are,” said Winston Damarillo, executive chairman of Amihan Global Strategies. “And for too long, we’ve allowed centralized institutions to write and share that story. As a Sovrin Steward, Amihan is excited and dedicated to help Filipinos and the ASEAN community reclaim their stories.”

The Sovrin Foundation was created in 2016 to administer the Sovrin Network and the purpose-built distributed ledger at its core. It is Sovrin’s mission to provide every individual, organization, and connected device with true self-sovereign identity, meaning digital identity that is decentralized, permanent, secure, portable, private and completely trustworthy.

“Self-sovereign identity is an ideal that crosses all borders and is as ubiquitous as the Internet itself,” said Heather Dahl, executive director of Sovrin Foundation. “Ensuring the enduring independence and accessibility of the Sovrin Network is vital to our mission. Adding a Steward as progressive and transformative as Amihan and in a region as vital as southeast Asia is an important step in Sovrin’s evolution and we’re very pleased about it.”  

Worldwide, there are currently 38 Stewards operating the validator nodes that maintain the Sovrin ledger. Amihan joins this community helping to keep the Sovrin Network reliable, independent, and secure. Stewards are governed by the Sovrin Foundation’s constitutional Trust Framework within which the ‘diffused trust model’ seeks to prevent any single organization having undue influence over the network.

About Sovrin

The Sovrin Network is operated by independent Stewards and uses the power of a hybrid distributed ledger as a fast, private, and secure framework for providing every person, organization, and connected device a permanent identity with which to transact and operate securely online in everyday life.
