COSMOS Metadata enhancements on Storage for Madrid city@OpenstackSummit2015!
In this talk, we describe the components of design and implementation of a metadata search capability integrated with OpenStack Swift. This facility has a rich metadata search API, and enables key applications that were not previously feasible, such as bio-informatics applications and analysing a media repository. In the public transportation domain, we demonstrate a smart city IoT service which collects bus trip history for EMT Madrid and stores it in Swift, Geo-spatial and time series metadata search enables efficiently retrieving the data of interest - for example it supports queries such as retrieving the bus trip history for a certain bus line close to a major sporting event which took place last Saturday. This enables efficient analysis of the data, for example comparing it with data for the same event in previous years.
