DECICE aims to develop an AI-based, open and portable cloud management framework for automatic and adaptive optimization and deployment of applications in a federated infrastructure, including computing from the very large (e.g., HPC systems) to the very small (e.g., IoT sensors connected on the edge).
Working at such vastly different scales requires an intelligent management plane with advanced capabilities that allow it to proactively adjust workloads within the system based on their needs, such as latency, compute power and power consumption. Therefore, we envision an AI-model, which can use a digital twin of the resources available, to make real-time scheduling decisions based on telemetry data from the resources.
The DECICE framework will be able to dynamically balance different workloads, optimize the throughput and latency of the system resources (compute, storage, and network) regarding performance and energy efficiency and quickly adapt to changing conditions.
The framework also gives the necessary tools and interfaces for the administrators and deployment experts to interface with all the infrastructure components and control them to achieve the desired result. The integration of the DECICE framework with orchestration systems will be done through open standard APIs to make it portable, modular and extensible
Last but not least any planned clustering activities such as trainings, workshops and webinars will be held in close cooperation with OEHI .
