A container can be thought of as a root folder under our OpenStack Object Storage. It allows for objects to be stored within it. Creating objects and containers can be achieved in a number of ways. A simple way is by using the
swift client tool.
Ensure you are logged in to a Ubuntu host that has access to our OpenStack environment on the 192.168.100.0/24 public network. This host will be used to run client tools against the OpenStack environment created. If you are using the accompanying Vagrant environment, you can use the
controller node. This node has the
python-swiftclient package that provides the
swift command-line client.
If you created this node with Vagrant, you can execute the following command:
vagrant ssh controller
Ensure you have set the following credentials (adjust the path to your certificates and key file to match your environment if not using the Vagrant environment):
