SwiftStack 4.0 For OpenStack Object Storage

SwiftStack, the San Francisco-based developer of a commercial version of the open-source Swift object storage technology, in April introduced SwiftStack 4.0, which is aimed at server-focused channel partners who can use the software to build OpenStack cloud-based object storage solutions.

New with SwiftStack 4.0 is integrated load balancing to help overcome potential network bottlenecks. SwiftStack 4.0 can also now export the metadata generated by object storage for use in searches with third-party indexing and search services. It also includes new data migration tools channel partners can use to help customers with capacity planning or for moving data to the SwiftStack platform, as well as an optional desktop client for Windows or Mac environments to sync and share laptop data.
