We installed and configured Swift and are able to access the container, upload and download object using swift client. We confirmed the same using Dashboard also. It is working fine.

Now we would like to know the quota assigned and how much is used and how much free space available?.

Also will it be possible to mount this container on Windows/Linux server. If so how can we do it?

Swift is object storage, I'm not familiar with ways to mount a container as a 'device' neither on Linux nor on Windows. You may need to use Cinder to create volumes to mount on virtual machines.
