Community Event September/October 2021: Optimising edge resource lifecycle across the Continuum

Title: Optimising edge resource lifecycle across the Continuum.

Connectedness has grown up in the last year with the increased usage of smart devices now integrated in citizens daily life. This IoT digital mesh has split traditional edge approaches into three different concepts: near, far and data centre edges. The situation is highlighting, even more, the need of improved control planes to manage several different resources offloading in multiple ways, and not only on an edge to cloud bidirectional approach. In this context, PLEDGER provides the first steps for an intelligent resource management, benchmarking infrastructure providers and taking deployment decisions based not only on availability. During this workshop PLEDGER will present its approach for solving current and future challenges. It is also planned to invite other speakers to provide their view on how to deal with enhanced control planes and discuss about future challenges.

We propose an agenda with 2 timeslots:

PART I: Introduction to the concept (10’)


PART II: PLEDGER approach + invited speakers (30’ including Q&A)

Proposed topics:

  • “Resource optimisation on the edge in PLEDGER: progress and challenges”, Francesco Iadanza (ENG)
  • Service Mesh and microservices
  • Control plane vs Data plane
  • Discovering, managing and meta-orchestrating resources

PART III: Future Research Challenges (20’)

Small round table open to all participants (and attendees)

Dear Elina,

Thanks a lot for your Community Event Workshop proposal! We will inform you as soon as possible whether your proposal has been selected for the Community Event in September!
