Cloud and fog computing create a new stack of resources, which we refer to as Fog-to-Cloud (F2C), creating the need for a new, open and coordinated management ecosystem.
The mF2C project sets the goal of designing an open, secure, decentralized, multi-stakeholder management framework, including novel programming models, privacy and security, data storage techniques, service creation, brokerage solutions, SLA policies, and resource orchestration methods. The proposed framework is expected to set the foundations for a novel distributed system architecture, developing a proof-of- concept system and platform, to be tested and validated in real-world use cases, as envisioned by the industrial partners in the consortium with significant interest in rapid innovation in the cloud computing sector.
XLAB utilizes fog-to-cloud infrastructure to improve flexibility, communication routing and recource sharing, of Sentinel device, the sensor based vessel control module, capable to inform the boat owner with all relevant data. Additionaly, XLAB provides expertise on data security, privacy and exploitation.
