Abstract

Massively distributed clouds (MDC) have a huge potential in serving novel applications and services in many situations. Mainly, they are able to provide communication without the use of an infrastructure and to guarantee full data and user anonymity. However, their implementation is not trivial and requires innovation in many different fields, such as opportunistic communications, big data management and security. In this paper, we present our first design of a MDC supporting architecture, called DICE: Distributed Infrastructureless Cloud sErvices. We present our main application scenario and focus on implementation challenges and early results.
