Zenoh is renowned for its highly scalable pub/sub algorithm, seamlessly supporting reliability, dynamic discovery, fragmentation, and wire-level batching. By integrating traditional pub/sub with geo-distributed storage, queries, and computations, Zenoh delivers unparalleled efficiency in message exchanges—an ideal fit for IoT/IIoT.
VAST, on the other hand, shares a similar architecture with its spatial pub/sub algorithm. Developed to scale virtual worlds that involve spatial coordinates, VAST leverages a distributed architecture and an Overlay network to facilitate efficient message exchanges. In the era of modern network devices with spatial information, VAST holds promise for edge computing applications such as IoT/IIoT.
This talk aims to explore the marriage potential between VAST and Zenoh. We will delve into the importance of spatial aspects and their key role in shaping future IoT applications. The focus will be on showcasing the performance of pub/sub algorithms with and without an overlay partition, using Zenoh and VAST as prime examples.
While the talk will present a side-by-side performance review rather than immediate integration of VAST Overlay partition into Zenoh, it raises intriguing questions about the potential for a marriage proposal if results suggest strong chemistry.
The objective is to address the following:
- Unveiling the significance of spatial considerations in IoT and how they can enhance performance
- Demonstrating the performance and capabilities of Zenoh and VAST through comparative analysis
- Assessing the feasibility and compatibility of a potential integration between VAST and Zenoh
This undertaking is an individual effort, and while there is no formal agreement with the Zenoh team, it serves as an opportunity to explore possibilities and inspire collaboration within the IoT community.
Join us in this captivating talk as we embark on a journey to discover whether VAST and Zenoh can form a union that revolutionizes the future of IoT. Be a part of this exciting exploration and witness the sparks that may ignite the next generation of IoT applications.
