    Foggy: A Platform for Workload Orchestration in a Fog Computing Environment

    No full text
    In this paper we present Foggy, an architectural framework and software platform based on Open Source technologies. Foggy orchestrates application workload, negotiates resources and supports IoT operations for multi-tier, distributed, heterogeneous and decentralized Cloud Computing systems. Foggy is tailored for emerging domains such as 5G Networks and IoT, which demand resources and services to be distributed and located close to data sources and users following the Fog Computing paradigm. Foggy provides a platform for infrastructure owners and tenants (i.e., application providers) offering functionality of negotiation, scheduling and workload placement taking into account traditional requirements (e.g. based on RAM, CPU, disk) and non-traditional ones (e.g. based on networking) as well as diversified constraints on location and access rights. Economics and pricing of resources can also be considered by the Foggy model in a near future. The ability of Foggy to find a trade-off between infrastructure owners' and tenants' needs, in terms of efficient and optimized use of the infrastructure while satisfying the application requirements, is demonstrated through three use cases in the video surveillance and vehicle tracking contexts

    A Blockchain-based Brokerage Platform for Fog Computing Resource Federation

    This demonstration aims at showcasing an initial version of the DECENTER Brokerage Platform, which leverages an Ethereum blockchain to enable resource federation among different Fog Computing infrastructures. We consider a scenario where an Italian Infrastructure Provider wants to seamlessly extend its pool of resources to get access to an IP camera located in Korea, so that it can deploy an application to locally perform text recognition from a live video stream
