Thank you very much for the answer. How can we estimate faster/slower of read/write? Are there any benchmarks available on the subject that we can use to measure this?

While uploading files to Swift, we are going to split them to parts. We are going to use it for (large) files synchronization when only changed parts can be uploaded later. But we are not sure what size for a part to choose. If, say, we split files by 10MB parts how it will affect the scalability, RAM usage and the performance of Swift, assuming that a node will have approximately 100TB space?

Hello everybody,

In the system requirements (http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-object-storage/admin/content/object-storage-system-requirements.html) it is claimed that 12 GB RAM is ok for 24 2T SATA drives servers.

We are thinking to use 45 3TB or 45 4TB servers. Does Swift scale to such servers? How much RAM will it require?
