Gladinet Cloud Supports OpenStack KeyStone 2.0

OpenStack KeyStone is an identity service

Gladinet has been supporting OpenStack since there was OpenStack. You can connect to an OpenStack swift (Object Storage) instance from Gladinet Cloud Desktop, Gladinet Cloud Server and also Gladinet Cloud Team Edition.

OpenStack KeyStone is an identity service (or user login service). The benefit is that it can tie different OpenStack services together by providing a service catalog after user signs into OpenStack KeyStone. Within the service catalog, there will be end points and connection information for OpenStack Swift Object Storage.

With the latest Gladinet release, you can find support for OpenStack KeyStone 2.0.
