Data Intensive Scalable Computing in Edge/Fog/Cloud Environments

In this talk we are going present and discuss aspects related to the adoption of Data Intensive Scalable Computing (DISC) paradigm, considering the new adoption trend of edge/fog/cloud environments. These contemporaneous scenarios are very relevant for all organizations, in a world where billion of IoT and IIoT devices are being connected, and an unprecedent amount of digital data generated, and requiring special processing and storage process efforts.

Resource Management in 5G Cloudified Infrastructure: Design Issues and Challenges

5G and Beyond (B5G) networks will be featured by a closer collaboration between Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) to meet the communication and computational requirements of modern mobile applications and services in a Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) environment. In this talk, we enlighten the marriage between the Heterogeneous wireless networks (HetNets) and the Multiple Clouds (termed as InterCloud) for a better resource management in B5G networks. First, we start with an overview of the building blocks of HetNet and InterCloud, then we describe the resource managers in both domains. Second, the key design criteria and challenges related to interoperation between the InterCloud and HetNet are described. Third, the state-of the-art security-aware resource allocation mechanisms for a multi-cloud orchestration over a B5G networks are enlighten.
