Fourteen leading European organisations join forces to provide a framework for green and privacy-preserving data operations in an edge-to-cloud architecture.
Existing network architectures offer a variety of options for storage and analysis of data. Currently, however, network architecture follows a cloud-based logic thereby hampering the exploitation of distributed architectures’ potential. Therefore, organisations that operate on an edge-to-cloud architecture have to deal with suboptimal results with regards to energy efficiency, computation and resources allocation for data storage and management performance. This problem is most relevant in large organisations with many distributed entities, such as public administrations, or organisations that make an intensive use of sensors, such as the ones operating in Industry 4.0.
