    John is one of the original authors of OpenStack Swift and has been leading the project since 2010. During this time, he's learned as much about community and organization as he has learned about distributed storage systems. John lives in San Francisco and works at SwiftStack.


1space allows you to store data in different storage systems and access them as part of one unified namespace. It can also move data from one location to another based with a rules-based system. These two features together gives users the ability to have data where they need it without needing to rewrite apps to account for where data is right now. 1space supports OpenStack Swift and S3 APIs and currently can be used with OpenStack Swift, AWS S3, Google Cloud Storage, or another S3-clone. This talk with introduce the 1space project and describe how it is used in production today. We'll go into detail about how it works and what's coming next in the project.
