Name: Student job: Lambda operations in Activescale
Company: Amplidata a Western Digital Company

** Western Digital & ActiveScale **

As a student you’ll be working in the Belgian software R&D team of Western Digital Corporation (formerly known as Amplidata), based in Ghent (@Ghelamco Arena). This team of storage software experts is working on producing releases of the ActiveScale Storage System. This team has lots of good ideas for prototypes, product & process improvements they want to see battle-tested. As WDC sees the value and the quality of engineering education, they’d like to get a couple of passionate students on board who want to learn about distributed storage software, how contemporary multi-person development is done and how working in our team feels like. See this student job as a unique opportunity for you to feel the vibe in a local and global company. If you like it and we like you…. We might have a great journey ahead of us.

** Lambda operations in Activescale **

We are currently in the process of building an event driven platform for our ActiveScale product where front-end storage operations can trigger various post-processing operations in a generic way (think of Amazon Lambda). Regardless from using this internally for capacity reporting and metadata-indexing, we’d also like to provide our customers with the ability to consume events and perform certain operations on the accompanying data (e.g automatically create thumbnails of pictures, characterize and tag biomedical data streams, ...)

In this project you will build a Proof-of-Concept program that:
- Loads a user-provided module
- Transforms and passes on events
- Offers API's to the system for easy consumption in the user-provided module

** Tools/Languages **

Java or Python, Thrift, Amazon S3
