Hi all,

For the openstack document i saw the following line here:

"Another use for object storage solutions is as a content delivery network (CDN) for hosting static web content (e.g., images, and media files), since object storage already provides an HTTP interface."

Is it still the same or is there a configuration to integrate openstack with an existing cdn provider?
