SOftware Defined AppLication Infrastructures managemenT and Engineering

SODALITE will provide application developers and infrastructure operators with tools that (a) abstract their application and infrastructure requirements to (b) enable simpler and faster development, deployment, operation, and execution of heterogeneous applications reflecting diverse circumstances over (c) heterogeneous, software-defined, high-performance, cloud infrastructures, with a particular focus on performance, quality, manageability, and reliability. In doing so, it will produce several tangible results:

  1. pattern-based abstraction library, including application, infrastructure and an absolute novum, performance abstractions,
  2. design and programming model for full-stack application and infrastructure descriptions, using abstraction library;
  3. deployment framework, enabling static optimisation of the so-abstracted applications onto specific infrastructures
  4. automated run-time optimisation and management of so-deployed applications.

This toolset will directly support Digital Transformation of European Industry through:

  1. increasing design and runtime effectiveness of software-defined infrastructures, to ensure high-performance execution over dynamic heterogeneous execution environments;
  2. increasing simplicity of modelling applications and infrastructures, to improve manageability, collaboration, and time to market.

Adaptant's Role in the Project

Adaptant is taking the lead role in technology use case validations and will lead the Vehicle IoT use case, expanding on its earlier work in the RestAssured project. Adaptant further leads the Impact Generation work package and is responsible for the overall impact generation of the project — taking the role of Exploitation and Innovation Manager for the project as a whole, where it will be responsible for, amongst other responsibilities, providing leadership in IPR management. Adaptant will further leverage its expertise in distributed data processing architectures, mobile edge computing, and the IoT to contribute edge capabilities to the Runtime Implementation.
