C7: Service-Centered Perspective

Interner Verweis Interner Verweis Interner Verweis Interner Verweis Interner Verweis Interner Verweis

Subproject C7 explores network adaptivity from a service-centric view within the new computing paradigm called edge computing. More specifically, we apply the microservice architecture to edge computing and investigate the fundamental challenges therein. In particular, we will focus on two problems, namely microservice autoscaling and microservice caching, and provide models and algorithmic solutions in the form of mechanisms and their transitions. The goal of this subproject is to generate formal basis and necessary guarantees for microservice-based edge computing, strongly enhancing the coverage of edge computing in MAKI. Moreover, new concepts such as coexistence of semantically-different mechanisms with mechanism modifications will be explored for the first time in MAKI, laying groundwork for future exploration towards this direction.
