Edge and cloud infrastructure resource and computational continuum orchestration system
For instance, a smart scheduling mechanism is presented further below. Given the nature of the data generated in users’ locations, the protection and privacy of such data is of utmost importance. Therefore, a suitable security and privacy framework is also presented and discussed. Similar to the orchestration, the automation of the security aspects of CHARITY is fundamental and is an integral part of the orchestrator.
The orchestration framework and the security framework need an efficient monitoring service that can continuously monitor the behaviour of the moving parts of the platform and the XR services. In this vein, a monitoring and resource usage prediction platform is introduced. This platform gathers all the important metrics and stores them to be used by intelligent algorithms, such as the prediction mechanisms, and that
The last aspect of this report deals with the interface between the proposed platform and the XR providers and developers. The proposed application management framework allows the XR developers to define the blueprint for their XR services. The blueprints are used by the orchestration framework for the deployment and the life-cycle management of the XR services.
Last but not least, it shall be stated that the algorithms and mechanisms, presented in this deliverable, are envisioned to be incorporated in some components of the CHARITY architecture as introduced in the deliverable D1.3 edited by ICTFICIAL Oy , and also the research work published in .
