OpenStack Regions and CloudBerry Drive

Previously users of OpenStack-based cloud storage services could mount only buckets that are located in the default regions of cloud storage services. Now a bucket in any region can be mapped with CloudBerry Backup. That enhancement affects HP Cloud, Rackspace and other OpenStack Swift-based cloud storage users.
