Thanks Jon.

By installing nova-compute-lxc LXC support will be enabled in openstack but
as you said since i need only openstack swift for object store and if i
want lxc support in this object store, is it necessary to install
nova-compute-lxc package for virtualization?

I have a basic doubt, can i virtualize my object store? if yes, can you
please give me a brief idea on how virtualization affects object store.

2. Sorry my question was Is there any API available to build a  swift
client to do the following task. Since i have installed SAIO on my laptop i
am currently uploading and doing all other the api calls in the proxy
server itself. I just wanted a solution to do all these
uploading/downloading as a internet user so that i can do uploads/downloads
from anyplace.
