Updated OpenStack Object Storage packages that resolve various issuesare now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 6.0(Juno).

Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform provides the facilitiesfor building a private or public infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS)cloud running on commonly available physical hardware. This advisoryincludes packages for:* OpenStack Object Storage serviceOpenStack Object Storage (swift) provides object storage in virtualcontainers, which allows users to store and retrieve files (arbitrarydata). The service’s distributed architecture supports horizontal scaling;redundancy as failure-proofing is provided through software-based datareplication. Because Object Storage supports asynchronous eventualconsistency replication, it is well suited to multiple data-centerdeployment.The openstack-swift package has been rebased to 2.2.0.Notable enhancements and fixes include:* Storage Policies are now supported. This is a large code change in theinternals of the Object Storage service. See the upstream documentation:http://swift.openstack.org/overview_policies.htmlStorage Policies have shown good compatibility in upstream testing,including the automated scheme migration (zero downtime is possible).However, note that once you upgrade nodes to openstack-swift 2.x, youcannot return them to openstack-swift 1.13 due to the change in thedatabase format. Another visible change is in the API where policysummaries are reported in HEAD requests or the “stat” subcommand in CLI.* The bind_port parameter must be specified, which permits a seamlesschange of the default away from the old 6000 block. For now you must setbind_port in all configurations, or the Object Storage service willrefuse to start after a “yum upgrade”. Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStackPlatform deployment tools specify the bind_port value, so typically noaction is required. The administrator should verify that services restartnormally after an upgrade.* Identity service (keystone) v3 authentication is fully supported. Inv3, user names are no longer unique in tenants because of the new conceptof “domains”. To avoid ambiguity and improperly granting permissions, youshould now specify user IDs instead of user names in the Container AccessControl Lists (ACLs). Old ACLs continue to work and apply to the defaultdomain (specified in the configuration). Even if you continue to useIdentity v2, Red Hat recommends you transition to user IDs in ACLs.* The Object Storage service now rejects ranged requests that are deemednot sensible (such as those with more than 50 specified ranges). This eliminates a possibility of denial-of-service (DoS) through rangedrequests. Please report if any legitimate applications stop working.* A server-side copy between accounts is now supported by adding a”Destination-Account:” header instead of the traditional “Destination:”header.* Object auditor can now run several audits in parallel (see the”concurrency” setting). This is useful for “fat” nodes with largehardware parallelism (if you have 80 drives per node, you shouldinvestigate this).* Object updater can now also run in parallel, but does not requireexplicit configuration.
