MIMOS Federated Mobility Cloud and Autonomic Services Management Platform (Mi-Focus)

Overview

Public and private services are being transformed into mobile delivery services due to the high penetration of mobile devices today. Mi-Focus offers an application delivery platform that allows services to be deployed at remote satellite resources. It de-emphasises from a centralised approach to a distributed and
de-centralised architecture. By hosting applications closer to users, it reduces the number of hops, network delay and data transfer as compared to users accessing services directly from data centres.

Mi-Focus is an application delivery platform to deploy services to
remote resources for Edge Computing. It allows management of resources through a centralised pane to provision applications, monitor the health, performance and trust level of nodes and applications, and control resources through a policy management module.

Features

Mi-Focus comprises the following features:

  • Distributed Application Delivery Platform
    Turn any x86_64 box with Internet connectivity into a Mi-Focus node machine. Provision applications straight from the cloud to the node.
  • Unified Resource Management
    Manage distributed node machine on a single pane. Launch containers, manage application images and users, and monitor and perform automated installation to machines.
  • Security and Trust Management
    Continuously monitor and evaluate security issues for each node machine over time. Monitoring is based on multifaceted approach centred on multichain factors such as the risk and reliability of physical machines, daemons and containers.
  • Centralised Policy Management
    Reduce a system’s administrative tasks by enforcing policy on nodes. A central point of control enables the creation and
    enforcement of authorisation or automation policies.
  • Scalable Image Registry
    A private registry to store application images that can be deployed as a single node or scale to support large deployment.

Technology Benefits

The main impacts of Mi-Focus are:

  • Simplified Application Deployment
    No more installation and configuration required. Application stacks can be pushed to nodes and started remotely.
  • Localised Application and Content
    Deploying applications at a remote site provides low latency access to services for customers, and minimises data exchange to the data centre that indirectly improves user experience.
  • Development of New Service Categories
    With Mi-Focus, developers are able to leverage on resources that are closer to users. New services can be built such as IoT, Smart City, location-based systems and others.
  • Application Virtualisation
    Mi-Focus enables focus on application virtualisation rather than server-based virtualisation. Application virtualisation generates a low footprint in resource utilisation.
  • Open Platform
    Mi-Focus is independent of specific hardware brands and can be deployed using off-the-shelf components adding to the flexibility in deployment and reducing vendor lockdown.
