Meet Koyeb, a new French startup founded by Yann Léger, Édouard Bonlieu and Bastien Chatelard, who have actually previously worked at Scaleway for several years. Koyeb is a serverless start-up that assists you manipulate data in various ways without worrying about your server facilities.
Competition has become incredibly strong between cloud provider, and < a class="crunchbase-link"href="https://crunchbase.com/organization/koyeb"target="_ blank"data-type="organization" data-entity =”koyeb” > Koyeb wishes to benefit from that. You can incorporate Koyeb with several cloud provider and let Koyeb do the heavy lifting.
You may save a load of videos on a things storage pail handled by DigitalOcean. Let’s say you wish to re-encode those videos to enhance them for a new device. Koyeb can import information from this container, re-encode those videos and publish the brand-new files to your pail.
However Koyeb goes one step-further by letting you mix and match apis and services. As cloud platforms become smarter, they provide services that surpass running servers and storing data for you.
For example, Google Cloud’s speech-to-text API is perhaps better than Amazon Transcribe. Rather of having to manually set up a multi-cloud workflow, Koyeb can take video files from an AWS S3 bucket, transcribe the audio from those video files on Google Cloud and conserve the result on the AWS S3 bucket.
There are many use cases for Koyeb. It varies from copying information from an S3-compatible things storage provider to another every day for redundancy, to setting off information processing with API calls. Everything scales immediately and once a workflow is done, you no longer get billed for runtime.
There are already dozens of combinations with data sources (as input and output) and ready-to-use processing APIs. Whatever can be configured in the web interface with multiple processing actions, using a command-line interface or the Koyeb API.
The business is just coming out of stealth and is currently working on more product updates. You’ll be able to use Docker containers and customized functions in the future, which need to make it possible for a lot more workflows. However it’s a promising start.
