CloudLighting (CloudLightning: self-organising and self-managing heterogeneous cloud – www.cloudlightning.eu), now in its final year, is delivering a Service Oriented Architecture for the heterogeneous cloud which moves the management burden from the customer to the provider. PrEstoCloud aims to further support the provider with tools for efficient management of cloud and edge resources.
COLA (Cloud Orchestration at the level of application – www.project-cola.eu/), a project that started together with PrEstocloud, will define and provide a reference implementation of a generic and pluggable framework that supports the optimal and secure deployment and run-time orchestration of cloud applications. PrEstocloud has a similar goal with a focus on hybrid clouds that include also resources at the extreme edge of the network.
DECENTER (Decentralised technologies for orchestrated Cloud-to-Edge intelligence – www.decenter-project.eu), an international research and innovation project (2018-2021) between the European Union and the Republic of Korea which is aimed at developing a new robust, decentralized Fog Computing Platform that covers the full range of possible smart services and devices, covering the whole Cloud-to-Things Continuum, able to provide Artificial Intelligence application-aware orchestration and provisioning of resources.
