Connecting with OpenStack Swift API

Connecting to Memstore via the OpenStack Swift API is really simple.

  • Open Cyberduck and click on the + button at the bottom of the main Cyberduck window to bring up the new server bookmark interface.
  • Select the Swift (OpenStack Object Storage) protocol from the pull-down menu as shown in the screenshot below and give the book mark a nickname. In the screenshot shown below this is "Memstore".
  • Use as the server name.
  • Leave the Port at 443
  • Use your Memstore product username followed by a full-stop and the container username (or if you're using the main admin account, use admin). In the screen shot below, the Memstore produce name is "msexample1" along with the user "admin".
  • If you're not connecting to a particular container and are logging in as the admin user, leave the path field alone - otherwise you can specify the container in the path field prefixed by a forward slash (/). For example: /myblog.

Memstore as CDN

A CDN is a Content Delivery Network and is a secondary location in the cloud where you can store and serve static content for your site. This content can be files such as images, movies, pdf's etc. This will reduce the bandwidth and needed server resources from your primary web server.

In order to make a Memstore container publicly available so you can serve files from it you just need to follow these instructions:

Creating a CDN Enabled Container

  • Login into your Memset account. You can log into your Memset account here.
  • Click on your Memstore instance(s) in "Your Services" section. Select the Memstore instance you want to use by clicking on "Manage" on it's line.
  • Click on "CDN Control" in "Storage Tools".
  • In the CDN Control you can see all the containers and their CDN properties. Click on "Manage" for the container you want to use to serve your files.
  • Check the box labled"Enable CDN" and then click on "Update".
  • At this point your container is CDN enabled which means that all the contents is now public.

You can access now access the selected container using the displayed CDN URL. Alternatively, you can add a CNAME entry in your DNS server to point to that host name. The CNAME that you need to use will be permanently shown at the bottom of that page under the "Using your own domain" heading.
