CODECO: Cognitive Decentralised Edge Cloud Orchestration
The overall aim of CODECO is to contribute to a smoother and more flexible support of services across the Edge-Cloud continuum via the creation of a novel, cognitive Edge-Cloud management framework. CODECO will implement software toolkits suitable for a smarter management of highly distributed environments based on heterogeneous networks and integrating mobile, resource-constrained devices. The CODECO components shall extend management and orchestration of Edge-Cloud services with cognitive cross-layer adaptability and with features that allow for intelligent decisions about computational offloading and network adaptation, while taking into consideration application requirements, networking requirements, data security and sensitivity, as well as other context specific aspects related with the data flow, which may emerge.
CODECO aims at providing support for the next generation of smart services, focusing on dense deployments in B5G/6G services. For this, CODECO considers multiple use-cases across different vertical domains (Smart Cities, Manufacturing, Energy and Smart Facilities), involving mobile, far Edge devices and addressing the IoT-Edge-Cloud orchestration based on a cross-layer approach that envisions data, compute, and network adaptation.
