ARES - bringing cloud infrastructure closer to the mobile user
***** THIS CALL IS NOW CLOSED ******
The main objective of the ARES project is to fill the gap between the current cloud infrastructure and the rapidly growing expectations of mobile device users to outsource components of real-time, interactive and demanding applications. To reduce device-cloud latency, additional cloud infrastructure will be deployed in the (mobile) network edge. This results in a 3-tier architecture, comprising the mobile device, low-latency nearby cloud infrastructure and traditional “deep-cloud” solutions. Application components will be dynamically distributed between the mobile terminal, the cloudlet and the (traditional cloud).
