[Openstack] Can any user add or delete OpenStack Swift middleware?
Thanks for your reply, very helpful!
I know Storlets can provide user-defined computation functionalities,
but I guess some capabilities can only be achieved using middleware.
For example, a user may want such a feature: upon each PUT request, it
creates a compressed copy of the object and stores both the original
copy and compressed copy. It's feasible using middlware but I don't
think Storlets provide such capability.
Another example is that a user may want to install a Swift3-like
middleware to provide APIs to a 3rd party, but she doesn't want other
users to see this middleware.
