SwiftStack is a software solution to help people easily create large scale object storage infrastructure in their own data center. They can run their own globally-distributed storage cloud running behind the corporate firewall and keeping the data secure and locally.

Now, during the event Cisco Live they announced a collaboration with Cisco to further deliver a turnkey enterprise cloud solution that enables customers to innovate faster, and respond to market opportunities with start-up speed and enterprise reliability. The integration of SwiftStack 4.0 with Cisco Metapod enables enterprise customers to build public cloud storage capabilities into their on-premises data centers. The new solution is available from Cisco and builds on SwiftStack’s membership in the Cisco Solution Partner Program.
