Hi Salvatore,

While the requests do stream through the proxy, the proxies are not really a bottleneck, as they scale horizontally like the rest of the system. Some of your questions about using more than one proxy node can be found with this question: https://answers.launchpad.net/swift/+question/134585.

The built in auth for swift is meant for development only, and not for a production system.

For the ring, we recommend administrating the ring on one server and then distributing the ring files out to all of the nodes (proxy and storage).

Since this question has come up more than once now, I'm going to create a bug report to add more clarification on how to add more proxies.
