6. EmbeddabilityΒΆ

The lightweightness and security that ZeroVM provides makes it ideal for embedding computation in virtually any existing system, particularly data storage systems. You can embed “untrusted” computation in any system simply by invoking ZeroVM as a subprocess, for example. Think “stored procedures”, but much more powerful.

A prime example of this embeddability is ZeroCloud, which facilitates data-local computation inside of OpenStack Swift.
