On Ubuntu 12.04, enable LXC support in OpenStack by installing the
nova-compute-lxc package. Note That LXC isn't virtualization (not
really) so your VM images need to closely match your compute-host.

:swift just enough for my task?

That said if you just want Swift as an object store you don't need the
other pieces of openstack (though you probably Keystone authentication
and might want the Horizon dashboard web UI)

:2. How can i make a custom swift client API ?

the API docs are at http://docs.openstack.org/api  if you need a
custom API seems you would write an api server that speaks the API you
want and then translates that to the Swift API to actually do what
ever it needs to do.  I'm curious why you need a custom API?
