Connexion diagram for a simple PUT operation in a container

  1. Client - Conscience. Find meta0
  2. Client - meta0 : find meta1 for the prefix of the container
  3. Client - meta1 : find which meta2 services manages this container
  4. Client - meta2 : find available RAWX to store content with the given storage policy
  5. Client - RAWX : upload chunks
  6. Client - meta2 : validate chunk location

Some response can be put in cache for performance reason
