Architecture

Picasso is comprised of two main components:

  • Picasso API
    • The Picasso API server uses Keystone authentication and authorization through its middleware.
  • IronFunctions
    • Picasso leverages the backend container engine provided by IronFunctions, an open-source Serverless/FaaS platform based on Docker.
