Talking SwiftStack with Founder and CEO Joe Arnold

MongoDB Atlas is a database as a service that makes it easy to deploy, manage, and scale MongoDB. So you can focus on innovation, not operations. Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

At Venture Beat’s CloudBeat I moderated two panels, the first was with PayPal and Puppet Labs and the second was with Disney, CloudStack and SwiftStack.

After the Disney panel I grabbed some time with SwiftStack’s CEO and Founder Joe Arnold.  SwiftStack is based on the OpenStack storage project, Swift, and helps operations teams implement and manage an easy-to-use, multi-tenant and highly scalable private cloud storage platform.

Take a listen to what Joe has to say:


Some of the ground Joe covers

  • [0:20]  What is SwiftStack?
  • [0:56]  Where did Joe get the idea for SwiftStack
  • [2:15]  What additional pieces does Swift Stack add to OpenStack’s Swift project?
  • [3:26]  What is coming down the pipe? (Spoiler alert, it has to do with Erasure coding and Storage policy)
