Swift is a multi-tenant, highly scalable and durable object storage system that is designed to store large amounts of unstructured data at low cost.
This session will provide an overview of Swift’s architecture and its components. It will also cover real- world use cases, illustrating how high-volume websites use Swift and how the technology enables storage infrastructure-as-a-service.
The OpenStack Swift introduction is aimed at attendees who want to understand the design goals of Swift and how they can best make use of this OpenStack component. It will be an informative introduction for those interested in running Swift or contributing to the Swift project.
