2017-2020: PrEstoCloud: Proactive Cloud Resources Management at the Edge for efficient Real-Time Data Processing
  • Coordinator: Software AG
  • Other partners: Software AG (Germany), CNRS (France), CVS Mobile (Slovenia), ADITESS (Cyprus), LiveU (Israel), N.Amram Technologies (Israel), Nissatech (Serbia), ActiveEon (France), Ubitech (Greece)
  • Description: PrEstoCloud project will make substantial research contributions in the cloud computing and real-time data intensive applications domains, in order to provide a dynamic, distributed, self-adaptive and proactively configurable architecture for processing Big Data streams. In particular, PrEstoCloud aims to combine real-time Big Data, mobile processing and cloud computing research in a unique way that entails proactiveness of cloud resources use and extension of the fog computing paradigm to the extreme edge of the network. The envisioned PrEstoCloud solution is driven by the microservices paradigm and has been structured across five different conceptual layers: i) Meta-management; ii) Control; iii) Cloud infrastructure; iv) Cloud/Edge communication and v) Devices, layers.
