Welcome to Swift’s documentation!

Swift is a highly available, distributed, eventually consistent object/blob store. Organizations can use Swift to store lots of data efficiently, safely, and cheaply.

This documentation is generated by the Sphinx toolkit and lives in the source tree. Additional documentation on Swift and other components of OpenStack can be found on the OpenStack wiki and at http://docs.openstack.org.


If you’re looking for associated projects that enhance or use Swift, please see the Associated Projects page.
