Dynamically upload and execute Storlets
Storlets are the link between storage and compute Clouds, leveraging automatic processing right where your data is held. You are able to define what operations you want to perform, and Storlets execute this when necessary to achieve that. They offer a perfect mix of computing, storage and security capabilities, and you can benefit from automatic video transcoding, OCR and picture processing on documents stored in the Cloud, eliminating inefficiencies and unnecessary manual operations.
Developed by Telefonica inside European project VISION Cloud, they are platform agnostic, so they have been ported to OpenStack platform inside innovation project OpenAppsCloud, as well as other initiatives, and were recognised as a valuable tool in the field of media production.
