Subject Re: OpenWhisk persistency (data store packages) + queueing
Date Mon, 19 Jun 2017 16:16:17 GMT
Hi David,

Have always wanted someone to volunteer to create more "data storage" 
packages (Feeds, Actions, Triggers,...) for more providers (e.g., Couch DB 
logical first choice being in the Cloudant family, MySQL, etc.).  In 
addition, would like to see if we can have packages for other popular 
queueing solutions (RabbitMQ, ZeroMQ, MQTT, etc.).

If I recall you were working on Swift storage (OpenStack) at one point?

Kind regards,

Subject:        OpenWhisk persistency.

Hi all,

In OpenWhisk, if I try to persist  content, I found no existing packages 
about it. Am I wrong, or is it that
OpenWhisk actions mainly focused on Compute, and storage or persistency 
not considered?

Just FYR, I made a small action which integrated with swift client, and 
could help persist content on IBM object storage
inside a OpenWhisk action.
I referenced code from this blog:

Is it a correct use of OpenWhisk action? do we need to consider more 
storage types, such as NFS, block storage and consider
add a persistency package for OpenWhisk?

Best Regards,
