Extending OpenStack Swift to Support Third Party Storage Systems

Since its inception, OpenStack Swift stores data using its own distributed storage implementation.  A new feature, called storage policies, was added in Juno and enables other storage systems to extend Swift, but only through the object server.  In this talk, we highlight current development which will enable third party storage systems to extend OpenStack Swift based on two key technologies, pluggable backends and single-process.  Pluggable backends will enable storage systems to also extend the account and storage servers, while single-process reduces the latency in the server to server communication.  These two technologies will provide third party storage developers an efficient method to extend OpenStack Swift.
