> only cases I can think of.
> 3. Once an object has been written, when and how is the container
> listing, number of bytes, account listing (if new container created)
> etc updated? Is there something done in the path of the PUT to
> indicate this object belongs to a particular container and the number
> of bytes etc is done in the background? A little clarification would
> help:)
> 4. For the global clusters, is the object ring across regions or is it
> the same with containers and accounts also?
> 5. For containers in global clusters, if a client queries the
> container metadata from another site, is there a chance of it getting
> the old metadata? With respect to the object itself, the eventually
> consistent part is a bit confusing for me:)
