Re: suggestion for data backup/recovery in swift

Could you please clarify this? 

I understand that drives are selected based on "account/container/object" path 
and do not depend on the current storage distribution. So, if versioning is 
allowed for each stored file, this will multiply the space requirements, but not 
affect the distribution. Am I missing something?

P.S. I couldn't find previous discussion on backup/recovery in mailing list 
archives, could you please send me a link if they are available online 
somewhere, thanks.
