Turtles all the Way Up - From OSGi bundles to Fog Computing.
The model of centralised cloud compute is changing. As large-scale IoT deployments have started to become real organisations are realising that a single central cloud can’t cope with the data security, data volumes, latency or robustness that they need for their businesses. Centralising in a single cloud also offers a huge operational risk - if the cloud fails, their business must continue!
This talk will introduce BRAIN-IoT, an EU Horizon 2020 funded project. Brain-IoT uses the latest OSGi R7 specifications to create an adaptive modular “Fog” environment with decentralised data processing and decision making. We’ll review the current design decisions made by the BRAIN-IoT team, including the issues concerning generic Edge Device discovery & integration, and see how they can be applied across different IoT use cases, including Smart Utilities and Industry 4.0 “Factories of the Future”.
