About swift architecture

the Multi-server swift installation documentation says proxy is in an external network, while the storage nodes are not accessible from outside the cluster.

The question is : when uploading objects to the cluster, how are the real data transferred? the data routine is user(client) -> proxy node -> storage node ? (regardless of request itself, just data here)

If so, when there's a lot of requests for reading/writing, the proxy(network) should be a bottleneck, although we can add other proxy nodes.
