Subject Re: S3 as Secondary Storage

Thanks Wido.  Yes, we have the same 'outdated' SDK being used issue for
Swift as well.  It is embedded in the code and it is ancient.  I have not
had a chance to get in there and update to a recent library.

We upgraded our setup from 4.4 -> 4.7 and we are in the process of
validating 4.10 as our next release base.

We have also found the 'upload to object store, then download again right
away' to be slow and very inefficient.  We have considered reimplementing
that logic, but we have not gotten to it yet.

I will be interested to hear how things go with 4.9.

Thanks for the feedback Wido.  :)
