Serverless image processing with Cloud Object Storage

October 20, 2020 5:00 pm CEST

When a new image is uploaded to your cloud storage, wouldn’t it be great to also run some additional processing functions on that image? For example, convert it to a thumbnail size, automatically enhance the colors, or analyze it to figure out what’s in the image. Serverless is a natural choice for this type of processing and analysis because your functions will be run on demand, at scale, and in the cloud in reaction to cloud object storage events.


In this webinar, we will learn how we can upload an image to a web application that is stored in IBM Cloud Object Storage, which triggers your serverless functions to run. Those functions perform some image processing and analysis, such as charcoaling the image and running visual recognition on it. After the analysis and processing is done, the results are stored in a different Cloud Object Storage bucket, which can then be read.
