I'm not sure what the point would be since it's just unstructured data, how many objects are we talking about. I would recommend you just pull the data down into an image, save to root disk and migrate the image over then just upload everything back to swift. Or just use any network storage option to easily copy/migrate the data over. Good luck.

In devstack, the data for Swift is stored in the source tree by default (in $DEST/swift/data) and can be moved by setting SWIFT_DATA_DIR. The specified directory will be created if it does not exist.

To migrate your data, copy this directory from the old devstack instance to the new instance.

You can change this in the localrc configuration
