    @Anonymous Thank you for your time and patience.

    There are not a lot of tools that support OpenStack Swift (the foundation of RAX Cloud Files). As this is a small amount of data (500GB), I would recommend using RackSpace’s recommended tool CyberDuck. It can copy and synchronize between Cloud Files and Blob Storage.

    Reference / recommendation from Rackspace - Other tools and applications for Cloud Files — Rackspace Cloud Files v1.0 v1. documentation

    Please let us know if you have any further queries. I’m happy to assist you further.

    I have already tried to copy data using cyberduck.... transferring or downloading data with cyberduck is not feasible as its taking many days. We are looking for some solution which can transfer data in hours, not more than a day.
