Metadata Search

We at HP Storage have created an Object Storage Metadata Search (OSMS) REST API that we would like to present to the Swift community for an open discussion. We have started an implementation that uses HP StoreAll's existing Express Query NoSQL database to store account, container, and object metadata for subsequent complex query functionality. It is similar in intent to SoftLayer's "API Operations for Search Services" (http://sldn.softlayer.com/article/API-Operations-Search-Services) but more feature-rich. It does not involve any changes to OpenStack code except for Swift middleware. We are interested in leading a pure OpenStack specification and implementation, as a standard extension to Swift. We're encouraging any community effort to move this forward, including SoftLayer developers. We have no reference implementation nor design that is pure OpenStack yet. We are just getting the conversation started. We will present the API we've designed so far, as a strawman for discussion, extending the base Swift REST API (http://docs.openstack.org/api/openstack-object-storage/1.0/content).
