Swift and Ceph are both very popular distributed and flexible storage systems providing object storage based on commodity hardware. However, they are very different. This presentation will provide a comprehensive comparison of Swift and Ceph. We will study some real-world object storage requirements and show some test results of both Swift and Ceph based on modeling of real-world scenarios. We will also discuss the pros and cons of building a object storage system with Swift and Ceph, not only the performance and features, but also the cost of constructing and operating such storage systems. We will take the "unified storage" feature of Ceph into account, which may save the cost if the user also want a distributed block storage system and file system.
