NOVI‘s (Networking innovations Over Virtualized Infrastructures) objectives are to investigate and experiment on open questions on monitoring, formal description and brokerage of virtualized resources within a federation of FI platforms.
NOVI‘s experimental research is driven by widely acknowledged Future Internet challenges. Its specific targets are expected to contribute in:
- integrating virtualization technologies at the network and computing levels with novel methods and algorithms to provision, monitor and control composite FI user slices;
- extending federation concepts at the data, control, monitoring and Provisioning Planes, that will assist substrate providers to securely offer measurable QoS-aware cloud services;
- empowering end-users with smart tools to discover virtualized resources and compose services by proposing a common definition language, enhanced by semantic web concepts and tools.
