Like electricity, compute resource can readily scale up and burst, and workload can operate geographically (cloud is cool!). Storage however is more like water, where moving large amounts of data can be more challenging, especially over distance. This session will cover architectures and approaches for storage clouds deployed across geographies. We will cover how OpenStack swift can be used for disaster recovery (stay-available during catastrophic failures) and multi-site access to reduce application latency (fast == happy users).

In this session we will cover the structure of the Swift ring and how it is used to distribute data across multiple data centers.
