The first VIDEO of RAINBOW is a FACT and is OUT! RAINBOW’s consortium releases the first video of the project, one that aims to awaken the public about the prospects of RAINBOW.
Our video, entitled “RAINBOW Approach“, is the first of a series of videos which will introduce and explain all of the project’s aspects to the audience.
This initial production provides a general introduction, regarding the concept and the targets of the project. More specifically, it presents critical points regarding the RAINBOW project such as:
- The philosophy behind RAINBOW’s platform
- The vision of RAINBOW project
- What does RAINBOW’s offers?
- What are the benefits of the RAINBOW solution?
- In which technological areas RAINBOW will be demonstrated?
The “RAINBOW Approach” video is available through RAINBOW’s YouTube channel and can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-1ZDvh8Y0w
The vision of RAINBOW is to design and develop an open and trusted fog computing platform that facilitates the deployment and management of scalable, heterogeneous and secure IoT services and cross-cloud applications (i.e., microservices). RAINBOW falls within the bigger vision of delivering a platform enabling users to remotely control the infrastructure that is running, potentially, on hundreds of edge devices (e.g., wearables), thousands of fog nodes in a factory building or flying in the sky (e.g., drones), and millions of vehicles travelling in a certain area or across Europe. RAINBOW aspires to enable fog computing to reach its true potential by providing the deployment, orchestration, network fabric and data management for scalable and secure edge applications, addressing the need to timely process the ever-increasing amount of data continuously gathered from heterogeneous IoT devices and appliances. The developed solution will provide significant benefits for popular cloud platforms, fog middleware, and distributed data management engines, and will extend the open-source ecosystem by pushing intelligence to the network edge while also ensuring security and privacy primitives across the device-fog-cloud-application stack.
RAINBOW has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 framework programme for research and innovation under grant agreement No. 871403.
