OpenStack Swift Storage Project Gets New Policies

Swift, one of the core projects in the open-source OpenStack cloud platform, was recently updated with its Icehouse release in April; however, the new Swift 2.0 release was not part of the Icehouse release, due to a number of timing- and testing-related issues that OpenStack Swift project leader John Dickinson detailed back in March.

OpenStack has two major integrated releases each year that include multiple projects within OpenStack. Dickinson explained to eWEEK that the features in the Swift 2.0 release will be further tested with other OpenStack projects for the OpenStack Juno platform release set for October.
