what is openVolcano?
The openVolcano platform aims at supporting mobile edge and fog computing services in 5G-ready infrastructures. To this end, the openVolcano platform has been designed through a highly modular and extensible architecture, exposing a number of latest-generation APIs, protocols, and interfaces (e.g., from OpenStack, to OpenFlow, libVirt, and ETSI NFV). It allows to create complex IaaS and PaaS services with tight delay/performance constraints as "templates", and to dinamically instantiate them at the network edge to single mobile users or groups. OpenVolcano provides a complete solution stack to autonomously and scalably re-locate/migrate service components those computing infrastructures that are enough close to the users on-the-move to meet service requirements. OpenVolcano is an open-source project, which stem from the former DROP project, and is lead by the CNIT S3ITI Laboratory. It has been conceived in the context of the Horizon 2020 INPUT project and will be one of the reference platforms for the Horizon 2020 5G-PPP MATILDA Innovation Action.
