[openstack-dev] Swift storage allocation

Are there lun sizing recommendations / ratios for allocating storage between containers, accounts, and objects?  i.e. Given 1TB of total storage capacity how many luns should be created and how should they be allocated?

Main use case is probably a consideration -- backups might require less account and container storage and more object storage than for consumer storage usage where there would be more individual customers / accounts.
I thought there might be some general guidelines.
The alternative would be to not differentiate then Swift would use storage as needed.
