Swift Storlets extend Swift with the capability to run computation near the data in a secure and isolated manner. With Swift Storlets a user can write code, package and deploy it as a Swift object, and then explicitly invoke it on data objects as if the code was part of the Swift pipeline. We use the term Storlet to refer to the binary code deployed as a Swift object. Invoking a Storlet on a data object is done in an isolated manner so that the data accessible by the computation is only the object's data and its user metadata. Moreover, the computation has no access to disks, network or to the Swift request environment.
