Orkney Cloud Data Centre

Publikation: Bog / Antologi / Rapport / Ph.D.-afhandlingRapportFormidling


At the edge of the internet, appliances (computers that combine hardware and software components) can be introduced to process data locally, thus avoiding data movement to and from warehouse-scale data centers. Such computers constitute the so-called fog computing or edge computing layer. For instance, Netflix proposes to install customized appliances on the premises of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in order to accelerate the delivery of Netflix contents. This way, customers of an ISP equipped with a Netflix appliance can access movies and series locally, without accessing the centralized Amazon cloud services on which Netflix contents usually reside.
Orkney Cloud considers the opportunity to create community-led managed cloud services at the edge, where the internet is thin, but the social networks are thick – and the environmental resource to power data processing is huge. But, what kind of data center should these cloud services run on?
