Using Container Synchronization between two Swift Clusters

Replicating container content from one Swift Cluster to another in a remote location is a useful feature for disaster recovery and running active/active datacenters. This feature allows a user to upload objects as normal to a particular container, and have those contents upload to a nominated container in a remote cluster automatically.

Getting ready

Ensure you are logged in to both swift proxy servers that will be used for the replication. An example of this feature can be found with the Swift Vagrant environment at If you created these nodes with this environment, ensure that you have both swift and swift2 running and you have a shell on both by executing the following command:
