Abstract

FluiDOS leverages the enormous, unused processing capacity at the edge, scattered across heterogeneous edge devices that struggle to integrate with each other and to coherently form a seamless computing continuum. By way of a disruptive, open-source paradigm that hinges upon secure protocols for advertisement and discovery, AI-powered resource orchestration and intent-based service integration, FluiDOS will create a fluid, dynamic, scalable and trustable computing continuum that spans across devices, unifies edge and cloud in an energy-aware fashion, and possibly extends beyond administrative boundaries. Notwithstanding its innovation signature, FluiDOS will build upon consolidated Operating Systems and orchestration solutions like Kubernetes, on top of which it will provide a new, enriched layer enacting resource sharing through advertisement/agreement procedures (in the horizontal dimension), and hierarchical aggregation of nodes, inspired by Inter-domain routing in the Internet (in the vertical dimension). Intent-based orchestration will leverage advanced AI Algorithms to optimize costs and energy usage in the continuum, promoting efficient usage of edge resources. A Zero-Trust paradigm will allow FluiDOS to securely control and access geographically diverse resources, while Trusted Platform Modules will provide strong isolation and guarantee a safe deployment of applications and services. FluiDOS will pursue the above goals through the creation of an open, collaborative ecosystem, focused on the development of a multistakeholder market of edge services and applications, promoting European digital autonomy. The involvement of stakeholders is planned from the outset of the project through pilots and demonstrator in the fields of intelligent energy, agriculture and logistics, which will challenge FluiDOS capabilities to adapt to different environments and operating conditions, while showcasing its groundbreaking innovation potential.
