Subject [jira] [Created] (LIBCLOUD-540) Implement Copy Object Semantic
Date Fri, 18 Apr 2014 15:45:16 GMT
Kyle Kelley created LIBCLOUD-540:

             Summary: Implement Copy Object Semantic
                 Key: LIBCLOUD-540
             Project: Libcloud
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Storage
            Reporter: Kyle Kelley

Several providers have a copy object semantic that works within one datacenter/region. [Azure
copy Blob](, [OpenStack Swift object

I have not dug into Amazon S3 or any others, so I could use some guidance there.

I'd like to design it to be used cross-providers instead of ex_copy_object, as discussed in

I'm imagining that the StorageDriver class would get this function header:

def copy_object(self, src_container_name, src_object_name, dst_container_name, dst_object_name)

That layout works for both OpenStack/Rackspace/HP and Azure, minus any additional metadata
headers that you might want to send for these providers. Is there a clean way to handle that?
