OpenStack Object Storage (code-named Swift) is open source software for
creating redundant, scalable object storage using clusters of standardized
servers to store petabytes of accessible data. It is not a file system or
real-time data storage system, but rather a long-term storage system for a
more permanent type of static data that can be retrieved, leveraged, and then
updated if necessary. Primary examples of data that best fit this type of
storage model are virtual machine images, photo storage, email storage and
backup archiving. Having no central "brain" or master point of control
provides greater scalability, redundancy and permanence.
Objects are written to multiple hardware devices in the data center, with
the OpenStack software responsible for ensuring data replication and
integrity across the cluster. Storage clusters can scale horizontally by
adding new nodes. Should a node fail, OpenStack works to replicate its
content from other active nodes. Because OpenStack uses software logic to
ensure data replication and distribution across different devices,
inexpensive commodity hard drives and servers can be used in lieu of more
expensive equipment.
This package provides some core binaries and clients to control swift.
