Subject Re: NFS vs Swift

Hi Sebastian,

Yes we are using the commercial version, we are also using XenServer 6.1
for the underlying hypervisor and there seems to be problems with NFS /
CloudPlatform, not confirmed. Just trying to work out reasonable options
to make life easier. We have no control over the storage as such as it is
centrally provisioned by the Universities IT department with very little
transparency. The actual storage is in a datacentre next door 3 x hops -
but I'm finding it difficult to troubleshoot as it is all very
inconsistent.

Thanks for your input.

Damien
