OpenStack Object StorageΒΆ

OpenStack Object Storage is used to connect to an OpenStack Swift server. Two authentication mechanisms are available: one is the generic OpenStack mechanism, and the other is used exclusively for Rackspace, a provider of object storage that uses the OpenStack Swift protocol.

The bucket will be created if it does not exist.

The OpenStack authentication mechanism uses the OpenStack Keystone v2 protocol, connecting to the server specified in the URL of Identity Endpoint field. You need your Username, Tenant name and Password.

The Rackspace authentication mechanism requires a Rackspace Username and API key.

It may be necessary to specify a Service name or Region. The timeout of HTTP requests is set in the Request timeout field, in seconds.

See Configuring External Storage (GUI) for additional mount options and information.

See External Storage Authentication mechanisms for more information on authentication schemes.
