SAVI Testbed for Applications on Software-Defined Infrastructure

Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter we introduce the Canadian project “Smart Applications on Virtual Infrastructures” that explores the design of future application platforms. First we present our original vision of a future application and content marketplace and specify requirements for application platforms. We identify multi-tier clouds that include a “Smart Edge” as essential to supporting low-latency and high-bandwidth applications. We describe a design for the Smart Edge that uses an integrated management system that virtualizes converged heterogeneous computing and networking resources and uses service orientation to provide software-defined infrastructure and platform services. Our implementation of Smart Edge clusters is presented and the deployment of these in a national testbed is described. The Janus integrated management system is introduced and we explain how it builds on OpenStack and Open Flow. We describe experiments and applications that are being conducted on the SAVI testbed. We then describe the federation of the SAVI testbed with GENI and we conclude with our plans for using the SAVI testbed as a foundation for smart city platforms.
