Configuring OpenStack Image Service with OpenStack Object Storage


By default, images are stored as files in the /var/lib/glance/images/ directory. However, OpenStack Image Service can be configured to use OpenStack Object Storage (Swift) for storing images, as well as other backend storage such as Ceph and GlusterFS. In this recipe, we will go through the steps required to configure OpenStack Image service (Glance) to use Object Storage service (Swift).

To log in to our OpenStack Controller host that was created using Vagrant, issue the following command:
