Fog Orchestration Mechanisms: An Overview

1         State of the Art Many orchestrators assume that applications are executing in an environment with reliable nodes and fast network connections, e.g., a cloud. However, a fog typically consists of heterogeneous devices that have varying hardware capabilities and may move or fail without notice [1] [2]. Devices may range from drones with strict battery constraints, over smartphones, to small servers. Furthermore, […]

Key concepts driving the innovative technological axes of the RAINBOW project: Scalable trust establishment & attestation and Geo-distributed data processing

Scalable trust establishment and attestation RAINBOW will include the provision of secure, robust, and efficient run-time behavioural attestation and verification methods to check the internal state of an untrusted fog-based environment towards establishing its trustworthiness and privacy. The endmost goal is to establish “fog/edge node communities of trust”. To do so, RAINBOW will develop a trusted framework for attestation and […]

Key concepts driving the innovative technological axes of the RAINBOW project: Fog/Edge Computing and Service Graph Topology Descriptions

Fog/Edge Computing In recent years, with the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the wide penetration of wireless networks, the number of edge devices and the data generated  from the edge have been growing rapidly [1]. Data mitigation is becoming a bottleneck constraining the cloud computing paradigm for delay-sensitive IoT services. Fog Computing promises lower response times for […]

Performance Comparison of Distributed Database Systems for Fog Analytics

One of the vital software components of RAINBOW is the Distributed Data Storage and Sharing Service. Its role is to provide persistent and in-memory data storage capabilities to nodes scattered across the fog continuum to ensure in-time access to recently collected monitoring data by collaborating entities (i.e., analytics, orchestration, routing). Data that are stored locally on fog nodes need to […]

Methodologies and techniques for extracting functional and non-functional requirements used for RAINBOW project

The intention behind the requirement elicitation, is to identify quality user requirements that can be implemented into software development projects.
