Why do you want to install only swift? You may need keystone as well nova too, if deploying openstack is your motive. Refer to this link if you have installed keystone and nova:

As you're running on CentOS, it would be worth investigating RDO ( This installs openstack in about 20 minutes with 3 commands on a single box.

Since this includes the dashboard and identity service, you'll be set up completely.

Tim - We have started to investigate RDO. Is it possible not to use Nova ( but deploy everything in RDO). Thanks.

Thanks for the response.

Jobin - We use Nimbula as compute service; Nimbula does not have object and image storage, hence we would like to take the Glance and Swift of Openstack only.

Tim - Thanks for your link. I would try it out. Hopefully one day we can just use all Openstack services ( Compute , Storage )

My question still remians - any instruction to deploy just Swift on CENTOS ?

Can you tell me if you will be using Keystone as authentication or not in your configuration?
