Swift Install Workshop 1:30 - 4:00 pm (Bayview B)

OpenStack Swift is a highly-available distributed object storage
system which supports highly concurrent workloads. Swift is the
backbone behind Cloud Files, Rackspace's storage-as-a-service

In this workshop, which will be hosted by members of SwiftStack, Inc.,
we'll walk you through deployment and use of OpenStack Swift. We'll
begin by showing you how to install Swift from the ground up.

You'll learn:
- what you should know about Swift's architecture
- how to bootstrap a basic Swift installation

After that, we'll cover how to use Swift, including information on:
- creating accounts and users
- adding, removing, and managing data
- building applications on top of Swift

Bring your laptop (with virutalization extensions enabled in the BIOS)
and we will walk through setting up Swift in a virtual machine. We'll
also build an entire application on top of Swift to illustrate how to
use Swift as a storage service. This is a workshop you won't want to
