Bug Description

Implement quotas for individual accounts/users.

I realize this isn't a burning need for big service providers but it's definitely necessary for private clouds.

Is there any chance for this to be included in Essex?

Were there any blueprints or ehterpads setup to talk about the quota
implementation?

No, but the summit talks haven't been set yet.

Point taken.

I'm not going to be able to code up a solution but maybe I can provide some more detail around the motivation for this feature. I've registered a blueprint and spec at

https://blueprints.launchpad.net/swift/+spec/storage-quotas
http://wiki.openstack.org/SwiftQuotas

If this can't be included in Essex as a bug fix, I'll propose a session at the Folsom Summit and hopefully get some traction on it.

Thanks,
Everett

Some work being done, at least on self-imposed tenant container quotas: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/19758/

Work also being done at https://github.com/AlexYangYu/StackLab-swift/tree/dev-quota

It'd be good to get some collaboration going...

Grizzly release had both account and container quota middlewares in it. Seems like this has been addressed to me; feel free to reopen if you disagree.
