We do something pretty similar with Rackspace Cloud Files, though we don't use Keystone but Rackspace's Auth. Same basic principle though. Collect account "stats" from all the storage boxes and upload them as csv files into the cluster itself. External jobs grab the csvs and process them however they see fit (double-checking against auth, etc.)
