my question is:

if we have different types of devices, for example, some of them are SAN devices, other are some NAS filers and some of them are some vendor specific storage arrays, such as, storage arrays provided by EMC, NetApp etc. And we want all of them act as storage nodes for Openstack Swift Storage, then Is it possible? and what should be the procedure for the same?

Format all these costly h/w to XFS and then add to exiting swift cluster as storage node. That will be the best suggestion i can give. :)
