Simplified Information Logistics
for Cloud & Edge environments
DITAS Cloud Platform provides two main tools: DITAS SDK in charge of supporting design and deployment, and DITAS Execution Environment, a distributed execution environment responsible for running and controlling the behavior of the application
Practical Tools for Data Intensive Applications
DITAS SDK provides extensions of popular tools such as Node-RED to define applications.
The key element of this tool is to allow developers to design applications by specifying Virtual Data Containers (VDC s) and constraints/preferences for Cloud & Edge resources to be exploited.
Applications are then deployed satisfying all constraints based on developer’s instructions and the degree of freedom given by the VDCs.
DITAS Virtual Data Containers
VDCs provide an abstraction layer for developers so they can focus only on data, what they want to use and why, forgetting about implementation details. With VDCs applications can easily access required data, in the desired format and with the proper quality level, rather than directly searching for and accessing them among various data infrastructure providers.
At design-time, VDCs allow developers to simply define data requirements, quality and how important data is. At run-time, VDCs are responsible for providing the right data and satisfying requirements by hiding the complex underlying infrastructure composed of different platforms, storage systems, and network capabilities.
DITAS Execution Environment
DITAS EE is based on our powerful execution engine capable of managing a distributed architecture and taking care of data movement and computation, maintaining coordination with other resources involved in the same application.
DITAS EE also has a monitoring system capable of checking the status of the execution, track data movements, and collect all data necessary for understanding the behavior of the application.
