Swift is an object storage system designed for data that needs to be instantly accessible, stored forever, and accessible from multiple devices. In short, it is the engine that runs the biggest storage clouds on the planet. This session will cover Swift’s architecture, its technology capabilities, and real-world infrastructure-as-a-service use cases. This OpenStack Swift introduction is great for 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.
