Come learn how to deploy OpenStack Swift from the ground-up. This will be a hands-on workshop where we learn by typing rather than just a lecture. Come with a laptop, or watch and learn.
In this workshop you will be walked through deployment and configuration of OpenStack Swift by the Swift experts at SwiftStack. We will guide you through the architecture of Swift while we walk through a step-by-step installation from the ground up.
In this workshop, you'll learn:
- Swift's architecture (The Ring, Zones, Partitions, Accounts & Containers)
- How to bootstrap a basic Swift installation
- The guts of how swift works
- Swift’s failure recovery mechanisms
Bring your laptop (with virtualization extensions enabled in the BIOS)
and we will provide a virtual machine image that will be used in the workshop.
