ACCORDION establishes an opportunistic approach in bringing together edge resource/infrastructures (public clouds, on-premise infrastructures, telco resources, even end-devices) in pools defined in terms of latency, that can support NextGen application requirements.
To mitigate the expectation that these pools will be “sparse,” providing low availability guarantees, ACCORDION will intelligently orchestrate the compute & network continuum formed between the edge and public clouds, using the latter as a capacitor.
Deployment decisions will also be taken based on privacy, security, cost, time, and resource type criteria. The slow adoption rate of novel technological concepts from the EU SMEs will be tackled through an application framework, that will leverage DevOps and SecOps to facilitate the transition to the ACCORDION system. With a strong emphasis on European edge computing efforts (MEC, OSM) and three highly-anticipated NextGen applications on collaborative VR, multiplayer mobile- and cloud-gaming, brought by the involved end-users, ACCORDION is expecting to impact the application development and deployment landscape radically, also directing part of the related revenue from non-EU vendors to EU-local infrastructure and application providers.
