PLEDGER aims to deliver a new architectural paradigm that will pave the way for next generation edge computing infrastructures, tackling the modern challenges and coupling the benefits of low latencies on the Edge with the robustness and resilience of cloud infrastructures. It will also allow edge computing users to understand the nature of their applications, research understandable quality of service metrics and optimise the competitiveness of their infrastructures. PLEDGER aims to deliver a set of tools and processes that will enable:

a) Edge Computing Providers to enhance the stability and performance effectiveness of their edge infrastructures, through modelling the overheads and optimal groupings of concurrently running services, runtime analysis and adaptation,

b) Edge Computing Adopters to understand the computational nature of their applications, investigate abstracted and understandable QoS metrics, facilitate trust and smart contracting and identify how they can balance their cost and performance to optimise their competitiveness and monitor their SLAs, and

c) Other industries to act as independent validators of QoS features in IoT applications, enabling new decentralised applications and business models, thus filling a large gap in the emerging Edge/IoT computing market landscape.

Future Cloud Cluster

The aim of Future Cloud Cluster is to provide a forum for discussion and collaboration for research and innovation initiatives that address next generation Cloud Computing challenges and issues, including diverse forms of distributed computing (Cloud, Multi-Cloud, Edge, Fog, Ad-hoc and Mobile computing). The goal of the cluster is to create a critical mass of projects so as to share experiences, collaborate on approaches, discuss challenges for adoption and future research and elaborate a broad EU perspective for cloud technology roadmapping.


MORPHEMIC is a unique way of adapting and optimizing Cloud computing applications. The project is an extension of MELODIC which is a multi-cloud platform developed in the H2020 project. MELODIC is the simplest and easiest way to use Cross-Cloud. Now this open source platform is extended to MORPHEMIC with 2 main innovative pillars:

  • Polymorphing architecture: when a component can run in different technical forms, i.e. in a Virtual Machine (VM), in a container, as a big data job, or as serverless components.
  • Proactive adaptation: aims to forecast future resource needs and possible deployment configurations -adaptation can be done effectively and seamlessly for the users of the application.
