Whiteboard

This should be implemented using swift as an object store. Any metadata about the artifact can be stored in the attached swift metadata.

[ativelkov]: Swift may be used as a backend storage (or one of the options, at least), however I believe that it should be fronted by Glance, providing meaningful high-level APIs, guaranteed object immutability and metadata manipulation actions.

As the design for this is still on-going, let's hold off on targeting the milestone, though it still seems the plan of Juno is reasonable. I'll also put this blueprint in the needs-information queue so that we can remember to check on its status periodically.
