This workshop will teach attendees how to deploy OpenStack Swift from the ground up. It will be a hands- on training where the audience will learn by doing rather than listening. Come with a laptop, or feel free to watch and learn.
In this session, the audience will be guided through a deployment and configuration of OpenStack Swift by the experts at SwiftStack. We will walk you through the architecture of Swift while demonstrating a step- by-step installation from the ground up.
Attendees will learn:
- Swift's architecture (The Ring, Zones, Partitions, Accounts & Containers)
- How to bootstrap a basic Swift installation
- The guts of how OpenStack Swift works
- Swift’s failure recovery mechanisms
The attendees interested in participating should bring their laptops (with virtualization extensions enabled in the BIOS), and we will provide a virtual machine image that will be used in the workshop.
