Can I migrate Swift data between storage policies?

Caleb Tennis -

At the present time the only way to perform this is via a client side operation, as moving data between storage policies also moves data between containers, which changes the URL of the object.  You can use the Swift object COPY operation (http://developer.openstack.org/api-ref-objectstorage-v1.html#copyObject) to perform the move.  This operation is synchronous and will return once the object has been moved.

 

A future version of Swift may include the ability to migrate data between policies and provide symlink support for old object names to point to new objects.
