Most of the places that I have gone through uses Swift to store images. Is there any other way to make the images Highly Available without using Swift?

Yes you can, you have to use a backend with shared storage.

You can use one of the following backends:

  • OpenStack Block Storage (cinder)
  • A directory on a local file system
  • GridFS
  • Ceph RBD
  • Amazon S3
  • Sheepdog
  • OpenStack Object Storage (swift)
  • VMware ESX
