Hi, how could I define what kind of storage device is assignd to a specific user or group? I.e. for a special user group I need to assign only partition over SSD disk to guarantee best I/O performance, but I need to use generic disks for others users. How could I do? Thanks

Swift does not currently support that use case directly.

You'd have to run a different API endpoint (proxy's) for each of the sets of rings of devices you want to expose. Effectively TWO swift clusters.

One idea that might be a pre-requisite for what you've described has been discussed in a blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/swift/+spec/object-replication-strategies
