openstack: All content tagged as openstack in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego announced a cloud storage solution based on OpenStack Swift Object Storage:
SDSC’s Cloud Storage provides academic and industry users with a convenient and affordable way to store, share, and archive data, including extremely large data sets. The object based storage system and multiple interface methods make the SDSC Cloud easy to use for the average user, but also provide a flexible, configurable, and expandable solution to meet the needs of more demanding applications.
Check out the project homepage for a short description of this new cloud offering characteristics.

Redis seems to be more and more associated with the cloud:
- firstly, it was Redis and VMWare
- then, Redis and Heroku
- and now Redis and ☞ OpenStack, the open source cloud computing software from Rackspace.
Soren Hansen (Rackspace) ☞ mentions Redis:
OpenStack (so far, at least) has two main components to it: A “compute” compenent called “Nova” and a “storage” component called “Swift”.
Nova is written in Python and uses Twisted.
Nova currently uses Redis for its key-value store. Nova can use either LDAP or its key-value store for its user database.
