  1. Sir,

    i read some of your articles..
    i am trying to establish storage service using openstack swift.
    i have the following hardware...IBM X3650M4 Server - 6 core - 2 servers and 16 GB RAM , 8 GB in each... on the hole 3.6 TB Hdd...
    can i use this hardware to run swift....
    my plan is to make two hosts..and on each host 3 vms containing obuntu....
    Can you please guide me to create a storage service

  2. Yes for testing/ learning. But not for production. For production, I'd recommend least 4 storage nodes and 2 proxy nodes i.e. 6 servers with a lot more storage.
