Breaking the Mold with OpenStack Swift and GlusterFS
Red Hat uses OpenStack Swift as the object storage interface to GlusterFS. Instead of reimplementing the Swift API, Red Hat is participating in the OpenStack Swift community to ensure that GlusterFS can take full advantage of the latest Swift features. This is absolutely the right way to pair Swift with another storage system: use the existing functionality in Swift and contribute back to community where additional functionality is needed. This talk from their respective project leads will show how Swift and GlusterFS work together to take advantage of the best each system has to offer.
