Until recently, Swift was just a passive storage - a deep freezer for your data. That is great for cold data, but what about warm data? Data that, from time to time, you need to scan, search, query or even arbitrarily transform? Until recently, Swift had no solution for those use-cases. That's why we have developed Zwift - a converged compute-storage cloud, based on ZeroVM Hypervisor and Swift Object Storage.
In this session, we would demonstrate how one can easily upgrade ordinary Swift installation to support in-situ data processing, using secure and lightweight ZeroVM hypervisor. Particularly, how to grep, search, query and map-reduce data natively in-Swift, from the comfort of your own browser, while leveraging huge compute capacity of the Swift cluster itself.
