ELASTIC has the three main objectives:

  • ELASTIC develops a software architecture incorporating a new elasticity concept, that will enable smart systems to satisfy the performance requirements of extreme-scale analytics workloads. The new elasticity concept will efficiently distribute the workloads across the compute continuum, whilst guaranteeing real-time, energy, communication quality and security non-function properties inherited from the system domain.
  • The vision of ELASTIC is that by extending the elasticity concept across the compute continuum in a fog computing environment, combined with the usage of advanced hardware architectures at the edge side, can significantly increase the capabilities of the extreme-scale analytics integrating both responsive data-in-motion and latent data-at-rest analytics into a single solution.
  • ELASTIC considers a realistic yet visionary smart mobility use-case, which  elaborates of huge amounts of data coming from a large set of IoT sensors distributed along the Florence tramway network. ELASTIC adopts a very innovative federated/distributed fog architecture, supporting elasticity across the compute continuum whilst fulfilling real-time, energy, communication and secure properties.
