The final step is to create the object ring, account ring, and container ring that each of our virtual nodes exists in. The OpenStack Object Storage rings keeps track of where our data exists in our cluster. There are three rings that OpenStack Object Storage understands: the account, container, and object rings. To facilitate quick rebuilding of the rings in our cluster, we will create a script that performs the necessary steps.

vagrant ssh swift-proxy
