Indeed, there is some work already going in this direction for OpenStack Object Storage. A couple of Red Hat engineers are working on LFS, Local File System (https://github.com/zaitcev/swift-lfs and http://zaitcev.livejournal.com/215159.html, plus there is something in review on review.openstack.org, too) to allow swift to better integrate with different filesystems. Something like LFS was originally proposed by Nexenta a while back but their patch unfortunately never merged. LFS was mentioned on swiftstack blog after the summit in Portland. details on http://swiftstack.com/blog/2013/04/24/openstack-summit-api-discussion/ HTH stef -- Ask and answer questions on https://ask.openstack.org _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~openstack Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~openstack More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
