This white paper explores the differences between Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) and the SwiftStack implementation of the OpenStack Swift object storage module.

It is clear that ECS has distinct advantages over SwiftStack as ECS is built from the ground up producing a fully-integrated, enterprise-grade object storage solution while SwiftStack added functionality on top of Swift to make it a viable, supported, commercial-grade product. The benefits of using ECS over SwiftStack is evident in the following areas detailed below:

  • Scalability
  • Installation and Provisioning
  • Management
  • Storage Efficiency and Data Protection
  • Data Access
  • Support and Upgrades
  • Data Security and Metadata Search
