what is geysers about
What is GEYSERS about?
  • A novel architecture and tools for the composition of logical infrastructures, that share the same physical subbstrate.
  • An enhanced NCP (ASON/GMPLS + PCE) architecture and protocols to use these logical infrastructures to provide advanced transport services coupled with IT services.
  • Business cases that impact infrastructure providers, network & IT operators and application providers.
  • Provide an enabler for the integration of dynamic optical network services in cloud computing scenarios.
  • Architecture definition, design, prototyping and validation

our problem statement
Our problem statement
  • New emerging applications with highly demanding network & IT resource requirements, but still unable to exploit the potentialities of the current optical network technologies
      • Network layer unaware of applications’ dynamic requirements
      • Net & IT resources controlled separately without any integration
  • Optical infrastructure providers and network operators unable to provide enhanced and customized network services
      • Today just simple connection services over generic optical network infrastructures
  • Opportunities for new business models:
      • Multiple virtual networks integrated with IT resource offered as a service
      • Customized virtual networks supporting dynamic Optical Network + IT provisioning services

geysers and cloud computing
GEYSERS and CloudComputing

Why Cloud Computing is relevant for GEYSERS:

  • The way in which Cloud computing services (application or infrastructure) are accessed and used increases the criticality of network QoS.
  • Network infrastructure services could be offered and managed using similarownership models and enabling similar virtualization and elasticity capabilities.
  • The convergence of IT and Telco service management is an important outcome for Cloud computing to reach a new level of critical mass.
  • As cloud computing increasesin popularity and scale, massive utilisation of network infrastructurewill be observed.

rora model basics
RORA Model Basics
  • Role and Actor:
      • Role: Names a behaviour of an entity participating in a particular context.
      • Actor:An entity taking part in a use case that may or may not interact with other entities that take one or several roles.
  • Provider vs. Operator:
      • Provider: A role for offering a resource or a service.
      • Operator: A role for controlling a resource, commodity or service.
      • Requester: A role for requiring the usage of a resource.
  • Ownership (simplified)
      • Economical: rights for physically controlling the access to the resource.
      • Administrative: rights to configure or operate a resource.
      • Usage: utilisation rights of the resources for executing a workflow.

an example scenario the vio
An example scenario: the VIO

Network Service Gold Customer

Cloud Service Provider (i.e. EU ‘Amazon’)

  • No CAPEX for the VIO to enter the business
    • Virtual network and IT infrastructure hired from Infrastructure Providers
    • NCP controllers licensed by stack providers
  • Specialized network(s) and related services; some advanced (cloud)
  • Advantages for both parties:
    • Telcos and IT Data Centers can rent out parts of their infrastructure to maximize utilization
    • Reduced CAPEX and time-to-market for the VIO
    • Pay-as-you-grow model and SLAs: depending on the business the VIO can rent more or release resources
    • Flexibility to easily cover new customer application demands with dedicated virtual infrastructures
