RFE - object connector for Swift (and/or Ceph)
Last modified: 2015-04-30 13:13:06 CEST
It would be (very) nice to have a connector to be able to store in Swift (or Ceph) objects the ZCS items.
Just like Scality or Caringo do...
Now Zimbra bought Mezeo (that has such a solution for object storage) and officially partners with Scality, the "open" solution is even more needed.
Feature confirmed for both ZeXtras Backup and ZeXtras Powerstore.
Planned for release in the ZeXtras Suite 2.x tree.
I created a Ceph connector for Zimbra using librados. you can find more informations here (in french) :
In my opinion, for large deployments, you have to solve the backup issue. I mean, the integegration between Scality and Zimbra is good for ISP but fail to provide a clean backup/restore solution for regular customers. Backup with Scality rely on dumpster and only allow you to restore an account in the account, it is not possible to restore in a different account or to restore a deleted account.
Librados allow to do that, using shapshots and small scripts around backup tools that I created for my Ceph connector. AFAIK, Swift don't have snapshots yet.
So how do you plan to manage backups with Swift ?
