    Not really. These are more a distributed file systems, with more flexibility, and security focus.

    OrangeFS is more of a competitor of GFS2 and OCFS2, than with Ceph, etc. OrangeFS can probably be faster that Ceph in many situations, due to more direct storage access by OrangeFS, but at the same time probably has worse scalability to big numbers of machines.

    It is a long time since I played with GFS2 and OCFS2, and never actually tried OrangeFS, but it would be most useful in HPC, computing clusters, not your "average" generic data center storage.

    Also OrangeFS is just a continuation of PVFS2, which is actually very old project (90s), and was used for long time in HPC-like scenarios.
