Workshop: Deploying OpenStack Swift

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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.
