SwiftStack: Private Cloud Storage

By Robert Scoble on August 14, 2013

SwiftStack is private cloud storage created for today’s applications. Its architecture allows you to serve content directly from the storage, rather than provisioning extra web-server infrastructure.

The SwiftStack Controller is the industry’s first Software Defined Storage controller. Like a software defined networking controller, the SwiftStack Controller is an out-of-band management system that powers commodity-based storage systems.

Managed through a browser-based Controller, SwiftStack is easy to operate from multiple levels of access. The dashboard interface removes the heavy lifting from configuration, organization, authentication, and load balancing. Regular alerts, reports and system stats keep you constantly updated on your storage needs.
