Internet of Things (IoT) architectures are usually backed by Cloud platform that provides storage, analytics, and control capabilities for the devices. Large-scale IoT solution requires advanced interoperability features due to heterogeneity of cloud services. Cloud federation paradigm offers a huge potential to ease the deployment and reduce the cost. Aspect such as resources broker, common access API, and management can untangle IoT architecture from the current convoluted design that, eventually, hit the wall of maintainability and scalability.
Join Dr. Robert Bohn, Cloud Program Manager at NIST, and Dr. Charif Mahmoudi, Software Architect at Siemens, to learn about:
•Concepts behind the NIST Cloud Federation Computing Reference Architecture (CFRA).
•Challenges related to interoperability and portability of data among cloud IoT platforms.
•Opportunities enabled by Cloud federation to enhance IoT architectures.
•Use-cases built on top of the federation management fabric.
