RClone - Swift
Swift refers to. Commercial implementations of that being:
Paths are specified as remote:container (or remote: for the lsd command.) You may put subdirectories in too, eg remote:container/path/to/dir.
Here is an example of making a swift configuration. First run:
This will guide you through an interactive setup process.
No remotes found - make a new one n) New remote s) Set configuration password n/s> n name> remote Type of storage to configure.

This remote is called remote and can now be used like this:
See all containers:
rclone lsd remote:
Make a new container:
rclone mkdir remote:container
List the contents of a container:
rclone ls remote:container
Sync /home/local/directory to the remote container, deleting any excess files in the container.
rclone sync /home/local/directory remote:container
Here are the command line options specific to this cloud storage system:
Above this size files will be chunked into a _segments container. The default for this is 5GB which is its maximum value.
The modified time is stored as metadata on the object as X-Object-Meta-Mtime as floating point since the epoch accurate to 1 ns.
This is a defacto standard (used in the official python-swiftclient amongst others) for storing the modification time for an object.
The Swift API doesn’t return a correct MD5SUM for segmented files (Dynamic or Static Large Objects) so rclone won’t check or use the MD5SUM for these.
