Swift containers

Are Swift container supported by the Data Butler ? If so, is there any documentation about how it interacts with the Data butler?

We are currently using S3 but we are interested in using other object store interfaces if there are available.

We currently use boto3 to interface to object storage. How to connect to Openstack Swift using boto3 - Stack Overflow seems to indicate that it is possible to use this with Swift containers, provided that the credentials are obtained and passed properly.

It is possible to write custom subclasses in the Butler to optimize for particular back-end storage implementations. These are distinguished by the protocol field in the URI. But we’d rather not maintain such a custom class if we don’t need to.
