Which software is required to start my own cloud storage with a capacity of 10 PB?

Do you understand the different solutions from a conceptual point of view? (Object/Block storage). What do you want to do exactly? Which hardware do you have?

maybe you could use ceph for object and block storage, but you have to design well your OSD nodes

From the information you are providing, you should probably look into OpenStack Swift.

You could install Swift directly, or use some solution such as Swiftstack.
